Any idea on how to remore a yahoo drop menu from Firefox?

I just added the Yahoo Toolbar to FireFox. When I did this, it automatically added a Yahoo drop menu to go with the Firefox ones. I have no need for it and want it gone. I'm trying to contact Yahoo, but no luck so far. The suggestions they have in their support Q & A don't help.

See you addons. Type about:addons in your url bar

In order to uninstall a possibly unwanted extension, please do the following:

  1. From the Firefox window click the Firefox button at the top left and select Add-ons, or, if the Firefox button is not shown, click the Tools menu and click Add-ons.
  2. Once the Add-on Manager has opened in a new tab, click the Extensions button on the left side of the window.
  3. You should now see a list of your installed extensions on the right side together with buttons on the right side of each extension.
  4. To remove an extension from Firefox, simply click the Remove button. You should see a message that informs you about the successful removal of the add-on.
  5. Note that some add-ons require a Firefox restart to be removed completely. To perform a Firefox restart after the add-on removal, click the Restart now link in the message.

Unfortunately this doesn't work because it's not listed as an extension. Still trying to reach Yahoo, but they don't make it easy. I like the options of the toolbar, but this drop-down menu bugs me. I just might have to find a replacement.

Do you still see that menu item if you start Firefox in Safe mode?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do not click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.
