Don't know how it arrived there, but this bar is blocking the tabs of Firefox when I'm browsing. It's a single line bar which would, if I ever wanted to use it, allow me to search the web via Chrome. But, I don't! My Firefox screen used to fit below this bar, but that, too, has changed, somehow. Seems the gremlins are in there! And... when I open Word, or Excel, the top line of tabs is also, now, hidden behind the Chrome bar. Making it a real pain to do anything. Yes, this Chrome bar is there with every application, whether Firefox is open or not. I would greatly value any contribution that will rid me of this extremely irritating issue. I tried to upload a screenshot to show the offender in situ, but the flower petals are still spinning after 30 minutes. so posted it as is.

Type about:addons<enter> in the address bar to open your Add-ons Manager. Hot key; <Control>(Mac=<Command>)<Shift> A)

In the Add-ons Manager, on the left, select Extensions. Remove Chrome Anything. Now do the same in the computers Programs Folder.

Windows: Start > Control Panel > Uninstall Programs. Mac: Open the "Applications" folder. Linux: Check your user manual.


It’s very sad, but many of the software downloaders / installers will trick you into installing not only their program, but other programs as well. You have heard of the fine print in shady contracts, right? Well, some installers you need to look at the itsy bitsy teeny weeny fine print. You are thinking you are giving the installer permission to install the program you want by using the recommended option. But if you use the Manual Option Instead, you discover all kinds of stuff that you do not even know what it is or what it does. From now on, everyone needs to Use The Manual Option to put a stop to this.

Hi there, Just wanted to post my personal thanks for clear simple and effective help. I do still have a Search the web... bar at the top of my screen, but this no longer occludes anything else I'm working on. So, yeah, happy with that. And with your additional information, I should remain free of rogue software. Certainly hope it all stays that way. Cheers!
