Specifically, which add-ons don't show?
- First show the hidden files and folders:
- Go to your profile folder:
- Close completely Firefox.
- Delete or rename the localstore.rdf file.
- Restart Firefox.
Hmm, "Plus-HD" usually is associated with unwanted software. The names prioceeecchopo and proicechoop also seem suspicious. And that MediaPlayerplus might not be good stuff either.
Bad extensions often are installed externally to Firefox. I suggest starting here:
Open the Windows Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. Click the "Installed on" column heading to group the infections, I mean, additions, by date. This can help in smoking out undisclosed bundle items that snuck in with some software you agreed to install. Take out as much trash as possible here.
Then, in Firefox, open the Add-ons page using either:
- "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons
In the left column, click Extensions. Then, if in doubt, disable (or Remove, if possible) unrecognized and unwanted extensions.
Often a link will appear above at least one disabled extension to restart Firefox. You can complete your work on the tab and click one of the links as the last step.
Finally, you can "mop up" remaining issues with the scanning/cleaning tools listed in our support article: Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware.

its called tamper data but it doesnt show
Sorry, I have never used that extension, but the Help page for that extension has "How to Use it" information. http://tamperdata.mozdev.org/help.html No Toolbar button in Customize, but rather it uses a Tools menu item - Tamper Data.
I found this;
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tamper-data-icon-redux/ Tamper Data Icon Redux 1.2 by Kingster
Open Tamper Data with a toolbar icon, an item in the Tools menu, or from an item in the Web Developer menu in 6+.
