A couple of days ago I had installed the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 on my system, as part of the VS Studio 2008 SP1 upgrade.
I thought that Microsoft would have enough of their stuff to update and worry about.
However, I was wrong, as they decided to “invade” Firefox as well.
The first annoyance is the “Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant”, which gets installed as a Firefox add-on.
The “uninstall” button is grayed-out for some reason.
I would prefer to keep all .NET material and tools on the Internet Explorer side, there is absolutely no need to mess Firefox.
And the second annoyance is the addition of the .NET version on the browser’s user-agent string.
Why should I report my .NET info on every Web site that I visit? Not every Web server is IIS.
Well, at least this can be easily altered on the about:config section (general.useragent.extra.microsoftdotnet).
