    Mozilla Firefox blocking add-on from site http://platformdl.adobe.com/NOS/getPlusPlus/1.6/gp.xpi

      I want to update my Adobe Reader from version 6 to the most current version 9(?).  I'm installing program/add-on through the Adobe website, but when I click to download, Mozilla Firefox is preventing the following add-on http://platformdl.adobe.com/NOS/getPlusPlus/1.6/gp.xpi.  Firefox verifies that the add-on is being sent by Adobe Incorporated, but I'm afraid to allow it without knowing for sure that if it is 100% legitimate or safe.  I recently brought back 2 PCs from the dead (1 running XP, the other running Vista) because of a serious Malware attack.  I've always been cautious with what I download and I use the paid AVG 9.0 edition, and I have no idea how this thing got through, but it was a nightmare.  Adobes recent security issues haven't been very assuring either.  Anyway, is it OK for me to install this add-on for the updated Adobe Reader?  Thanks in advance, your input is greatly appreciated.
