The annoyances of proprietary Firefox extensions

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 72.237.174.94] on December 19, 2008 09:33 PM
I'm not even sure where to look to see the licenses of add-ons. I was checking on one (coolpreviews) to see what the license was, but couldn't find it anywhere. Not during the install, not on the preferences page, not on the download page, or on the developer's site. Unless I'm missing the obvious, that's pretty disturbing.

I don't have a problem with proprietary add-ons, but I'd like to know what I'm installing.
