This is one of the most subtle security flaws a system can have, and one of the most difficult to fix. This is why extending browsers should be done carefully and not willy-nilly... add the wrong plug-in, break security for one person, and security is ruined for everybody. If your banker ends up leaking the password to the bank systems to the wrong person because of a vulnerability like this, your bank account might be drained.
