Uninstall Contribute Toolbar in Firefox 3.0

Dec 9, 2009 7:46 AM

Hi there, I apologize if this info is already posted somewhere obvious, but I have scoured the web for a long time and looked through the forum and I can't find an answer. I had installed Contribute CS3 (I believe it was) along with the Firefox toolbar, then subsequently uninstalled Contribute, but it didn't take the toolbar with it. For months now, whenever I load Firefox I get a kind-of-annoying error message about no updates being available, and I believe I have traced it directly to this disabled toolbar. (Even so, I want to uninstall it either way.)


The problem is, I can't uninstall it. The thing was completely unuseable, but I installed a trial version of Contribute CS4 last night. The toolbar is back, so thinking now I could just uninstall everything, I went ahead and nuked Contribute CS4 (this is all in Vista, btw), but the toolbar is still there. It's not even disabled, it's just there, and I can't get rid of this sucker.


Can anyone give me the lowdown on how to uninstall this thing? Will REALLY appreciate any help or guidance whatsoever.

    In Firefox have you gone in to Tools>Add ons to see if you can remove it there?

    On Mac you have to go to root/Library/Application Support/Mozilla/ Extensions and delete the extensions.


    The extensions are cryptically named so which one exactly is Contribute, no idea . Perhaps it's best to write down your add ons before deleting them in the Firefox Tools   Add ons UI >
