Why is Firefox always asking me if I want to allow Google+ to use Google Talk?

I wonder why I keep getting emails telling me Google Talk for Windows is no longer supported.  I wasn't even trying to use it!

Story
Tagline
I'm writing a book about South Hadley, the town where my youngest child was born. I'm naming names!
Introduction
Mr Sweet started on Suzuki violin at the age of four.  He attended the Conservatory at Rivers where he majored in Performance and Violin, the Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music where he majored in Chamber Music and Coaching.  He was Concertmaster of the Weston Symphony Orchestra, CAMSA, the Chamber Orchestra at Rivers.  At Hampshire College, Sweet majored in Ethnomusicology and the Psychology of Music, graduating with a BA in 1985.  He opened his studio in 1986.  Sweet plays mandolin and guitar with Fiddle Hill, a world music ensemble that performed at the Great Pyramids in Egypt, fiddle with Celticado, a traditional Celtic ensemble, and mandolin and fiddle with The Americana Project, a bluegrass band.  He is the Manager and a co-founder of Mandolin New England.

The Sweet Music Studio is located in the old Chateau building at 185 West State St in Granby, Massachusetts.  Programs begin after school on weekdays, and on the weekends.  Check the Events listing for public events, and the Education section for private programs. 

"Adam is a very imaginative music teacher in that he not only teaches the mechanics of how to play an instrument, but he also teaches the history of the instrument, the history of the music, the social aspects of the music and how to play different types of music. So students gain a broad understanding of the instrument and the music that they are playing.  I believe that his offerings are a significant contribution to the culture of South Hadley."
~ Ben Levy Granby, MA

“The big thrill of playing in an orchestra is being in the middle of the sound,” said Sweet's student Will Melton, who plays mandola. He was a member of the Providence Mandolin Orchestra before moving to South Hadley. “Being in the middle of acoustic instruments, playing harmonies in split-second time — it’s a spiritual experience.”
~ Gena Mangiaratti, The Daily Hampshire Gazette


"Get a group of musicians playing mandolins at the same time and the result sounds like a “harpsichord from heaven,” according to multi-instrumentalist Adam Sweet, founder of the Mandolin Orchestra of South Hadley."
~ Ken Maiuri, The Daily Hampshire Gazette


"Hampshire College graduate Adam R. Sweet teaches mandolin and studied ethnomusicology at Hampshire. He is also a graduate of the Conservatory of Music at Rivers in Weston. Stay tuned… If Sweet has his way, there will be music in the air."
~ By The Republican Editorials
