Mozilla Firefox Packages

What is Mozilla Firefox Packages?

The software uses the Install Core Click run software which is an installer which bundles legitimate applications such as Firefox with offers for additional third party applications that may be unwanted by the user. Such third party applications are typically installed onto users’ computers by default, but may include an option to ‘opt-out’ during or after the installation process. Typical bundled installs include DealPly as well as other potentially unwanted programs.

The 'Packages' program is simply a wrapper/manager around the bundled software it installed during setup. By running the uninstaller option, the program will show the various bundled programs such as DealPly and allow the user to remove it. Besides this, the software servers no other purpose. To fully remove the 'Packages' program you must select the checkbox at the bottom of the screen to (Add/Remove from Windows).
