Removing Total Adblock.
On the Total Adblock site it gives these directions for removing the program: "Mozilla Firefox Uninstalling Adblock from your Mozilla Firefox browser is very simple and can be done within a few clicks. Go to the Extensions Page on Mozilla Firefox copy this link into the address bar of your browser:about:addons
Find Total Adblock within your plugins . Click the 3 Dots. Click Remove."
I do not know where the "extensions page" is. Nor where to find it. While I have been using personal computers for decades, I am still a complete beginner when it comes to any technical jargon. If someone would kindly give me directions in English about getting rid of this annoying extension/program? I would deeply appreciate it.

I have included the steps you need to take in order to remove your addon. Some people either type in the search bar about:addons or they manually go through a series of steps like how I've displayed it in the screenshots. It is all in order (my screenshots) so it will be easier for you to navigate!
Hope I helped!

In your screenshots, you went to the wrong section.
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.
But doing it your way also results in the same thing as what I got it's just that you went to the Extensions. Thanks for feedback!

Total Adblock, or just AdBlock, should be listed under Extensions. Can you post a screenshot of your extensions page?
Ummm...just curious if your last reply was directed to me. Thank you!
My thanks to all of you who replied. I followed Bithiah's screenshots to remove Adblock. But the last screenshot didn't help at all. It didn't have any instructions about what to do next, nor any mention of Adblock. However, when I got to the page before that, it did have the name Adblock with the on/off switch in a bubble so I put it in the off position. Except for one popup ad it has stopped plaguing me. Thank you, Bithiah.
There are several ad blockers available. If one does not work for you, try a different one.
No problem, and sorry about the last screenshot. Glad you've found the solution!
