Well consider this use case:



You've just downloaded & installed WOT and you're logging on to mywot.com. Login page says "The add-on is not installed" and offers a link to the download page. What do you do? You think the add-on is not installed.



I'm not an expert how Firefox add-ons work, but if it's possible to really detect if the add-on is installed (with or without the "autologin" option on) the site should create a link like: "Log in automatically... " in the login screen. And redirect you to a page that tells you how to do that. (= click the "autologin"-checkbox at preferences)

I'm sure this could be easily improved in future versions. Luckily, when you first install the add-on, this option is enabled by default. So unless the user tweaks the advanced settings, they won't be confused about the message.
