Mozilla pulls four Firefox add-ons over excessive data collection

  Mozilla pulls four Firefox add-ons over excessive data collection Browser security extensions aren't automatically safer -- they might even make things worse. Mozilla has pulled Avast's Online Security and SafePrice extensions for Firefox, plus their AVG-branded equivalents, after AdBlock Plus creator Wladimir Palant found they were collecting much more data than necessary. This included a detailed web history that went well beyond site addresses and search history, including when and how long you visit a site, what you click, the number of open tabs and even when you switch to another tab. Mozilla's policies explicitly forbid this kind of fine-grained collection.

A live grenade was found in a dresser donated to a North Carolina thrift store.

An employee noticed the explosive in one of the drawers after the furniture was donated to the Habitat for the Humanity ReStore in Durham on Saturday afternoon, according to a Facebook post from the store.

Google's powerful Recorder app now works on older Pixel phones

  Google's powerful Recorder app now works on older Pixel phones Over its last few Pixel cycles, Google has made a point of bringing some features of its most recent phone to other devices. This week, for instance, Pixel 4's live audio captioning tool expanded to Pixel 3 and 3a devices. Now, owners of older Pixel handsets can check out one of Pixel 4's niftier aspects: the Recorder app that can capture and transcribe audio simultaneously. Google said last month it'd make Recorder available for older Pixels. On Thursday, it updated the app, which should now pop up in the Play Store for other supported Pixels, namely Pixel 2 and later devices. However, it doesn't seem to work on the original Pixel -- at least not officially.

The store was then evacuated and the bomb squad from the Durham Police Department responded to the scene, ABC Durham affiliate WTVD reported. Technicians are examining the device to determine exactly what it may be, according to the station.

In May, a grenade was found in a donation bin for a Goodwill in Port St. Lucie, Florida, the Treasure Coast Palm reported.

The ReStore reminded donors to "check" their "drawers" before dropping items off.

"Never a dull moment at the ReStore," the Facebook post read.

The store opened a few hours after the incident began, according to WTVD. The store was evacuated for 90 minutes, and the bomb squad determined that the grenade was inert.
