Why has Mozilla Firefox blocked Browsing Protection by F-Secure add-on?

This evening my F-secure Safe wanted again to install Browsing Protection by F-secure add-on on my Firefox web browser.

I have had that add-on activated since I installed F-secure on my pc.

But now Mozilla has blocked the add-on.

Mozilla's reason: This add-on violates Mozilla's add-on policies by executing remote code and insufficient user data handling and protections.

Can someone help me, please?

Or do I need to wait for F-secure to contact Mozilla???
