View Full Version : [SOLVED] How do I remove Firefox addons manually?

August 24th, 2009, 11:38 PM

I installed a few addons for Firefox the other day (TwitterBar and FoxTab if it matters) from the mozilla addon homepage (http://addons.mozilla.com). After restarting my browser the simply didn't work. In fact the didn't show up at all. Disappointed, I tried to remove them from the Add-ons menu. The strange thing now was that it told me to restart Firefox to enable the addons at all, and so I did. It has been like that since then, no matter if I click Cancel on the mentioned addons. Even worse, they draw all the other previously working addons down in the depth.
My question now: dows anybody now if there is somewhere I could remove these addons manually (deleting files, change a XML-file or similar, etc).
Thank you!
