Note that the "Manual Install" button is a mechanism for installing software from a site specified by the web page. Many potential victims who have come this far might be convinced to go ahead and install arbitrary software from the attacker's site even without this vulnerability.
Do not press the "Manual Install" button on the Firefox plugin finder. Instead use a search engine to find an appropriate plugin for the content.
