eBay AddOn via FF Update?
« on: November 11, 2014, 03:44 PM »
I've been avoiding FF auto updates so perhaps everyone else is already aware of it, but I was dismayed when I tried updating to 33.1 via the help menu and got an eBay Button on the Toolbar.  Yuck.  :)

I notice I've a few new buttons placed on the toolbar - but for extensions that I already have - no ebay one added.

Did you update from 33.02?  It seems curious.

Just reporting in that I upgraded from latest version before 33.1 to it and got no extra extensions/plugins.

Thanks for the info.  I don't know why these update developers feel it's their God given right to just do whatever while they are at it.  I could just imagine the same thing for surgeons.  "Yeah, I was performing the hysterectomy and thought it would be a great idea to add an ice maker while I was in there."   :)

Same here. I'd just installed FF a few weeks ago for the first time because I needed it for something (I forget what). I believe the version then was 33.03. I opened it yesterday to what all the hubbub was about and it said it was going to update to 33.1 ... So I let it do its thing.

No sign of eBay anywhere.
