Recently, Mozilla pushed Firefox users a browser extension called Looking Glass, which is actually an attempt to cooperate Mozilla and Mr. Robot series, which contains the clues the author reserves for the players. But since Firefox did not initially provide any explanation of the sudden appearance of plug-ins, many users were frustrated.

It is reported that, although this plug-in is turned off by default, but did not install the user will receive notification of the reminder, and the plug-in description is blurred: "My actual situation is different from you". In its community, some users wrote: "There is no history of this extension in my memory, and I would not choose to install it. I can not even find the description on the internet. There are also users worried that spyware is not installed into their browser.

Even Mozilla software developer Steve Klabnik publicly criticized this behavior on Twitter: "How can we secretly install software on a user's computer as a privacy-focused browser? More importantly, how can management fail to see this as a problem? & rdquo;

After a controversy, Mozilla said it has stopped pushing Mr. Robot extensions to users and has chosen to move it to an expanded store to be of interest to users who choose to install it.
