Very strange indeed.
Now that I have children I can see how tuned they are to the world. Living crystals tuned to all manner of frequencies. And how urgently they need to be heard. They look up and they say, look at me. And I put my phone away.

It is very unscrupulous of Microsoft to sneak a Firefox extension into an "Important" Windows update. Shame on them!
I'm glad that it's easy to uninstall, but that doesn't forgive their behavior.
