I frequently get comments that users are clearly informed when they are prompted lớn install these add-ons, so they shouldn"t complain when it happens. While I agree that users should be deliberate when installing software and scrutinizing every line and checkbox that comes up, it"s also clear that there are serious problems with an entire distribution Model that relies on users not noticing what"s happening.

In some cases, the "typical" installation already includes the add-on and the only way to turn it off is to lớn use the "custom" installation, which many users won"t vày.

It also doesn"t help that, at least on the Java installer, users are shown the message "We recommover installing the FREE Browser Add-on from Ask."
