firefox added a "search bar" as a tab. I don't want it. How do I get rid of it?
This was solved a long time ago. I previously flagged it as solved. I continue to get suggestions.. I don't need them. I've tried "unsubscribe" too, but I still get answers. NO FURTHER ANSWERS ARE NEEDED. Thank you. recently Firefox installed a search bar in line with my tabs. I don't want it and can't find how to get rid of it.

It seems to part of the add-ons. I was able to remove it by going to the add-ons in the Firefox menu, and taking to following steps:
Add-ons menu, Extensions, Default tab, Click "remove" (I tried just disabling it, but it didn't seem to work, so I removed it.)
It should then ask if it's ok to restart and when it opens up again, the search box should be gone. Hope this helps, it worked for me.Go to answer 89

I've done EVERYTHING that was up there and no luck, maybe I'm doing something wrong. But I'm pretty sure I followed the instructions correctly.
Did you try safe mode for Firefox like jscher2000 suggested? If you follow his instructions exactly (read them several times) it should remove it; it was the only thing I could find that would completely remove it. Good luck

Hi jnoecker, sorry for the inconvenience. The "Stop email updates" link to the right of your original post should prevent notifications of new replies. If that is not working, we should have the board developers figure out why not.
