Fired up Firefox this AM and was greeted with this screen:

So, as a test, I clicked on "Install Now" and this popped up:

"Very curious", I thought, that Firefox is preventing itself from installing an app to "Improve Firefox Privacy" ?!?

But I hit "Allow" anyway and this popped up:

Note the two "Access" bullets I would be allowing...

So, in essence, the SearchLock install wants me to allow them to protect me from everybody else wanting to access my search histories and give exclusive permission to them instead AND make SearchLock my default search engine (about whom I know nothing)!

What A deal!! And I should trust them more than Google, et al, ??

Maybe I missed something, but I closed that tab...
