When I try to open an image I am redirected to gophoto.it. The image won't open
Example: Search in Google = Royal Navy Open link in Wikipedia. Wikipedia has an image I would like to open. When I click on the image a get a blank window with this in the address:
Ah. Didn't realise you were a mac user. Most of my previous post will be of no use to you. Have you tried the apple forums?
PS: Take a look at marineking555's post (3rd on in this thread). Doesn't really fit does it?
I have seen similar threads to this one on a number of forums. You always get an answer like his. One post, never any more, saying the same thing.
Facebook has an app for resizing any image you mouse over. It is also a re-direct to gophoto.it. Does his post make more sense now?Go to answer 1
I had this exact same problem. The solution for me was quite simple. The extensions are located in the Firefox folder, but that is located in a hidden "Library" folder on your mac. Follow these instructions to unhide the folder: http://osxdaily.com/2011/07/04/show-library-directory-in-mac-os-x-lion/
Now on your hard drive you can go to: Users\"Your Profile"\Application Support\Mozilla\Extensions
And delete the troublesome extensions. Hope this helps.Go to answer 2

ludayoda, thanks for the tip - unfortunately, it did not work for me. I ended up reinstalling OSX, which I know is an extreme step but it did solve the the problem.
Thanks for all suggestions, and good luck figuring out the root of this.
Hello everyone - any updates on this? I have the exact same issue as greenh0rn and Jeremy, also on a mac. I simply cannot get rid of gophoto.it and freehdsports.tv firefox plug-ins. I tried some of the suggestions mentioned here, without success:
Deleted all firefox extension within the firefox folder (ludayoda)
Attempted to track them down using the id in the troubleshooting list (jscher)
I have not tried "hacking around" with the sql databases as I have no idea what that means. I checked for anything called 1clickdownloader on my machine - couldnt find anything. I would really prefer not to have to reinstall the os as one user did.
