Mozilla Firefox was the first browser to bring the concept of extension to the general public. It is thanks to the intuition of its programmers and the community that supports it if today we can enrich our browser with customized functions, creating a program tailored to us and our needs, but not everyone yet knows how to make the most of this potential.
While almost everyone is able to install them by now, there are still many novice users who don't know how to remove extensions from Mozilla Firefox. If you are one of these too, know that today I am here for you. In fact, I'm going to explain step by step how simple it is to uninstall an extension installed previously in Firefox without risking KO the browser. Here's everything in detail.
If you want to learn how to remove extensions from Mozilla Firefox, the first step you need to take is to open the program through its shortcut on the desktop or in the Windows taskbar and go to the extension management panel by clicking on the orange button Firefox (top left) and selecting the item Additional components give the menu to compare.
In the tab that opens, you will find the list with all the add-ons installed in the browser. To delete one, all you have to do is click on the button Remove placed under its name and restart Firefox for the changes to take effect. To restart Firefox, all you have to do is click on the item Restart now that appears in place of the name of the deleted extension.
As seen in the guide on how to delete extensions from Google Chrome, even in Firefox you can disable add-ons instead of uninstalling them completely. If you do not want delete extensions from Mozilla Firefox but only disable them for a certain period of time, all you have to do is go to the add-ons management panel and click on the button disable placed under the name of the extension to disable.
Again, the browser must be restarted for the changes to take effect. To do this, act manually by closing and reopening the program or click on the link Restart now that appears above the name of the disabled extension. Disabled extensions can be restored at any time by going back to Firefox> Add-ons e clicking on your button Attiva located under the name of the add-on to be reactivated.
