What is the Mozilla Maintenance Service?

Noticed It In my programmes and features In the control panel of windows seven, So done some googling and found out what It Is and how to disable It.

Firefox now installs an optional service called the Mozilla Maintenance Service. This service allows Firefox to install updates without requiring you to click yes in the Windows User Account Control (UAC) dialog.

Thanks for the heads up.
I've uninstalled Mozilla Maintenance Service and, hopefully, won't get re-installed.

Checked and I haven't got it but I found this
"msi to redistribute ms vs2005 CRT libraries" which is apparently something to do with Firebird but I have no idea where it came from
