How to uninstall system applications? I want to uninstall pinterest.

I love minimalist systems (like archlinux). This is why I buy a firefox os phone, who gives me more control over to wich applications may I have or not.

I believe pinterest is not a essential system application (as some others), so I want to uninstall it. Is it possible?

Thanks!

Hi lecarrera,

Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to remove links from the Everything.me webapp links.

The user experience of this feature has been completely renewed for Firefox OS v2.0, allowing users to create their own smart collection folders.

Long press on the icon then a close symbol (x) will appear press it. Or you can go to settings, app permissions and select the app scroll down there will be a button ' uninstall app'. Some apps which come preinstalled may not be able to uninstall.

That is exactly my question. Why some preinstalled applications may not be able to uninstall, if they are not essential? Pinterest is one of those in my phone.

Hi lecarrera,

Are you still experiencing this issue?

I believe what you are referring to are the Everything.me applications. They are not installed in your device, they are simply links to web-applications. These applications do not take up space and memory from your Firefox OS, so you do not have to worry about that. =)

Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns about your Firefox OS device.

Thanks,

Then my question is, how can I delete the link?
