Thing is, I've never installed any add-ons, and I've disabled installing
add-ons. I also don't understand why anything related to Microsoft is
interfering with Mozilla? The whole point of using SM is to avoid
Microsoft's security-flawed application software.

Please read http://shaver.off.net/diary/2009/10/16/net-framework-assistant-blocked-to-disarm-security-vulnerability/ for that, it also liks articles with more info about what it is.

Microsoft installs it silently and in a somewhat hidden fashion, and their representatives asked to block it for now.
