Posted

I have tried everything, ad/remove programs does not list Firefox so I can't use that for uninstall, I already used it for a previous downloaded Firefox. Removed from both Programs and Programs 86 AND I used regedit to remove any Mozilla or Firefox listing. BUT IT STILL THERE LISTED in the Windows 10 programs You can click on it and it opens but you cant load simple files like Google.com or Gmail- iT says the pages are currupted and refuses to load them for "security" reasons-BALONEY!! these pages open in Chrome and Edge on the same computer! How the "HECK",,, can I delete this nightmare? Also tried from Settings Apps but No dice. I need a Firefox Removal Tool!!!! I even tried downloading a new Firefox but only that one would uninstall.

Okay, if you right-click that shortcut, click Properties, then check the Shortcut tab, the location of the firefox.exe executable should be listed in the Target field.

Do you mean you can find it on the Start menu? If so, could you try

right-click > More > Open file location

to see where it is on your system?

If you mean it is listed somewhere else, where is it listed?

It says pages are corrupted? That doesn't sound familiar. If you want to try visiting those pages in Firefox, could you copy/paste the full message.
