Just downloaded Firefox on a new machine.
"Amazon assistant" is a preinstalled add on. Why?...

@cwcopa Maybe because Amazon pays the bill of Firefox developers.

@cwcopa What the hell? Are you using Ubuntu? Distribution maintainers often change the default firefox distribution to customize the homepage or add some addons. Please have a look at system extensions, and remove the ones you don't want.

Windows 10, Download from Mozilla. Going to check it on other system soon.

@cwcopa That is strange, you sure you don't have any Amazon app (Alexa, desktop app etc) which can potentially install the extension?
