Nikki, what problems do you face while uninstalling Firefox from Control Panel? Do you get any error message? Also, do you mean to say that you are not able to find this file: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\uninstall\helper.exe ?

By the way, why exactly do you want to uninstall Firefox?

In Add or Remove Programs, it is listed as Mozilla Firefox (version number).

If you no longer have the Firefox program folder (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox) then Firefox is already uninstalled and you are only left with an orphaned entry in Add and Remove programs.

Don't ask "Why" That's not the issue.
