  • Click the button with three horizontal lines found at the top right of your Firefox browser (If you do not see the  three horizontal lines, please scroll to the directions for older versions)

 

  •  Select Add-ons from the drop-down menu. 
  • Make sure the Extensions tab is selected on the left side of the screen.  Find the extension you are looking to remove.  The name will match what is displayed on your browser.


 
  • Click the Remove button.
  • On the confirmation dialog you will find we make it super easy to restore your browser's homepage and/or new tab settings back to their previous settings if we changed them.  Simply leave the box(es) checked and click "OK."
