Do not install this add on.No one can figure out if its a fake.Waiting on Malwarebytes to confirm what is going on.

OldPhil the timing of it is weird because Malwarebytes usually gives a heads up,otherwise how would Firefox users know it was even offered.I saw it being talked up on Wilders,Malwaretips and Ghacks.
