2. Spend some time skulking around the seemier areas of the net, and you'll realise that there is currently a big race on to exploit FF. Because FF is in the news so much lately, a lot of the high end hackers are working hard at creating not only a proof of concept, but releasing something "in the wild", for the bragging rights of being first. A lot of these people are motivated by vanity. Being the first to release a FF browser hijack would gain whoever did it some instant headlines and credibility in those circles.
