 In https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy.html#warning, we warn
 people against installing additional addons or plugins. We should also
 throw up a similarly detailed warning when users navigate to the Addons
 pane, or try to install an addon from elsewhere.

 In fact, I believe we already do throw up the generic warning, because we
 removed addons.mozilla.org as a trusted addon source. So perhaps we just
 need to change the text.
