Mozilla, the Firefox browser developer, has announced that Firefox firefox42 cannot install an unregistered extender. The company claims that the arrangement is for security reasons.
Registered extenders refer to extensions that have been validated by the Mozilla Extender, or have been manually audited. In the latest FIREFOX40 official edition, users will receive a security warning if they attempt to install unregistered programs.
In firefox41, only the special way "About:config" can be installed. However, by firefox42, all installation paths for unregistered extenders will be blocked and users cannot install them.
Mozilla Firefox browser accessory developer director Jorge Villalobos says it is not possible to sit back and ignore the poor extension. Now the company is learning from Google to standardize the browser extender market, but Mozilla does not force users to download proprietary extender websites, and developers can publish their own extensions anywhere, just as they used to.
The difference is that the new program needs to be authenticated by Mozilla, and the developer will register the Mozilla account (if not) before it is released, and submit the product to the system for review.
