How do I remove foxydeal?

Posted

With the latest update, firefox installed foxydeal without my permission! Now I can't seem to find a way to remove it. Please tell me immediately how to remove it. I don't want it and it slows down my system. It is not acceptable to just add this type of program without the user's permission.

foxydeal is a third-party extension https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/foxydeal/ and has never came with any Firefox install or updates for any OS from mozilla.org

You or something installed this extension and you may only just noticed now or forgot about it.

It wasn't Firefox, the latest update to Show IP add on created the Foxydeal program . Sorry for the mistake.
