Hi there,

It means, the presented "addons" (that are displayed under the message "firefox has established that the following add-ons are known to cause stability or security problems") are prevented from running by Mozilla Firefox.

When you try to install an add-on that is in the blocklist, Firefox will block the installation and display the message:

"The add-on name has a high risk of causing stability or security problems and can't be installed."

Check to see whether there is an updated version of that add-on:

Check Extesion updates:
1.) Launch Mozilla Firefox.
2.) Click on "Tools", Select "Add-ons"
3.) Select the "Extensions panel", and then click Find Updates.

If Firefox finds an update, you will be prompted to install it and restart Firefox.

Update Themes:
1.) Click "Tools", Select "Add-ons"
2.) Select the "Themes" panel and click Find Updates.
3.)If Firefox finds Updates, install it and Restart Firefox

Update Plugins:

Thank you :)

I'm seeing the same popup, but what I don't understand is what is triggering it. I am not explicitly trying to install any add-ons or anything else, just web surfing. And when I notice it, it is buried under other windows, so I don't know when it actually appeared. Is this a possible malware attack?

Thanks.

The name would imply much more powerful and potentially devious capabilities, as seen in most games these days. Instead, the “God Mode” folder for Windows 7 supplies a tidy place to find nearly everything you can do within the Windows Control Panel.

To access the special capabilities of the God Mode folder, create a new folder anywhere on your Windows 7 computer and name it:

GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Once renamed, the icon will change to a control panel looking icon, and when opened you will be presented with a plethora of different tweaking options. On my Windows 7 Professional machine, I was shown 274 options. It appears to hold the main keywords for each option to use the search function within the control panel.

Word has it that this hack also works on Vista 32-bit, but crashes on 64-bit versions.

or you can just Google Windows 7 Gode mode and find it yourself....there's hundreds of posts about it.
