"Mozilla removes Avast and AVG extensions from add-on portal over snooping claims".

Specifically Avast Online Security, AVG Online Security, Avast SafePrice, and AVG SafePrice for allegedly collecting users' browsing history. These have been removed from Mozilla's store for Firefox but are still available at the Chrome Web Store (though Google is expected to remove them soon).

Avast says that the company is working with Mozilla in order to make the data collection as anonymous as they had previously claimed.
