Good day. While checking the output of the backup program I use with Firefox,

I noticed an add-on that I have no idea what it is for. I opened the file;

 

Add-on; {a50cec4a-6ecf-46a3-aef9-771c91b652cf}.xpi

 

I looked thru the files in the XPI. This is some of what I found;

 

File; AddonObserver.js

 

AddonObserver.prototype.installPrepare = function(Instruction) {
//console.log("install");
//utils.installXpiFromUrl(Instruction.xpiUrl);
console.log("installPrepare", Instruction);
var tmpNsIFile = FileUtils.getFile("TmpD", [Math.random() + ".xpi"]);
console.log(tmpNsIFile);
==>>  // f*ck *ff  (Yes, thats the words it used)
utils.downloadFile(Instruction.xpiUrl, tmpNsIFile);        
console.log(tmpNsIFile);

-------------------------------

File; Console.js

// most recent window for using firebug // populated by xpcom window-mediator mrw: null // while mrw is null, save messages, to send them then , firebugQueue: []

 

and

 

// try to get ref to Firebug of very first FF window

Note; I do not have Firebug

 

Can anyone tell me what this is for?  I had asked a modernator at the Firefox forum,

He was not sure, but thought it could be a virus. He told me to ask about it here.

Welcome aboard p22002758.gif

 

Google search for {a50cec4a-6ecf-46a3-aef9-771c91b652cf} brings only your post so the addon looks suspicious.

In that case you have to decide where you want to stay, here or there.

The reason I asked is from what I could see, the file in question was created during a backup using the FEBE program.

I gave them the link to that file, and they say it is not theirs. They also agree it may be mal-ware.

I used my Norton Anti-Virus to quarentine a copy of the program, and send the program to Symantec.com

Should I also send it to other other scanners as well?

Symantec will be fine.

Let's see what they say.
