That is the most ludicrous article I've ever read. The solution is to 
install it then remove it! At least that's how I read it.

Before I try the very last step [not having installed it] which says:
Remove the .NET Framework extension files. To do this, follow these steps:
    * Log on with an account that has Administrator permissions.
    * Click Start, click Run, type explorer, and then press ENTER.
    * Open the following folder:
    * %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5\Windows 
Presentation Foundation\DotNetAssistantExtension\
    * Delete the DotNetAssistantExtension folder and all its contents
will that screw up anything else about firefox behaviour or any other 
windows programs? I'm using XP Home, FF 3.5.3.
