Privacy is always an issue. I think Firefox should manually look into extensions to make sure we don't fall victim to such issues.

Firefox extensions do go through review process before being put on the addon store, and they also have to be signed by Mozilla.

Never used the extension, but thank's for letting everyone know. I trust the extensions from completely unknown developer when they let people view their source code ie they are open source. So one can dive into the code to see if anything is jeopardizing the security and privacy or not.
The software does not have to be free for it to be open source.

Fortunately like many other freevps members I've never used that kind of browser extension. However firefox who have already identified the issue should alert the respective audience too. Looking at the amount of information collected by that extension, it's pretty harmful for the victim users. I mean alerting by email or something will surely help me them change their security measures I guess. Anyway HXY, thank you for sharing this useful post.

Why you should immediately uninstall Hola:
"Hola is harmful to the internet as a whole, and to its users in particular. You might know it as a free VPN or "unblocker", but in reality it operates like a poorly secured botnet - with serious consequences."

I hardly use much toolbars, extensions, and etc on my pc. I have a adblocker, https everywhere, and no script. I like my browser the way it is. I love Firefox. :p

That sounds like a Tor Browser setup... Consider using tor?

Well I've considered Tor but the problem with Tor is because it goes to three volunteer servers, in the European area (I'm in Canada), it's just too low..  I don't need to hide my ip really anyway and it's annoying on quite a bit of websites where it checks if your connecting from a Tor exit node or a open relay...
