It is a false positive because I have this extension installed on Chrome and it did not detect in Chrome either. Please fix it ASAP.

What is the reason why MBAM detect this extension as PUP.

It was blocked because of this: https://adguard.com/en/blog/big-star-labs-spyware/

Big violation with the privacy policy.

For firefox, it seems like they haven't change much regarding this at all. For Chrome, they did some changes to it. Although, we will review the Chrome extension and re-add detection if still needed.

Hi ,

Detection was created for the extension initially as it breached Mozilla privacy criteria and in our opinion that constituted it becoming Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP).

However they have since modified/updated their extension (21/02/2019) to comply with Mozilla extension privacy rules so we will be removing detection for their current firefox extension.

However we will remain vigilant and should they relapse then we would relist the offending extension(s) again in the future.
