Odd message re add-on

Hi - I was in the middle of reading a post (and doing nothing else at all) when the following message popped up:

Add ons may be causing problems
This Connection is Untrusted
You have asked Firefox to connect
securely to en-gb.click here, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely,
sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is
trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

Technical Details

en-gb.click here uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is only valid for *.mozilla.com.

(Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)

I've never come across it before - is it anything sinister?

It's quoting Microsoft.net Framework Assistant 1.1 and Windows Presentation Foundation 3.5.30729.1 - I haven't got a clue what the latter is.

Thanks, Lotvic, glad it's not just me!

I'd better read the lonks in the morning - at the moment, I haven't a clue what to do!

I just blocked both add-ons in Firefox.
Haven't had any ill effects so far.
