Last evening while browsing I received a popup letting me know a new version of the Firefox extension Skipscreen was available for download.
This was not the typical means of an extension update notification and it also said this version was not allowed on the Mozilla addon site, so of course I immediately installed it.

During installation it presented three options for toolbars and homepage modifications and I unchecked all.
This morning when I opened Firefox my homepage was now "Skipsearch". Not only that, but my Internet Explorer homepage was also Skipsearch. I changed both and uninstalled Skipscreen and so far all appears ok.
Needless to say I will not be using that extension anymore and encourage others to not install or use this extension in the future.
