How to remove Toggle Seach Engine toolbar from Firefox?

Posted

I inadvertantly clicked on a window which downloaded Toggle search engine which placed a toolbar on Firefox 3.5.5 and has replaced the 'standard' Firefox-Google home page. I deleted Toggle from manage search engine options and delted the Toggle files in windows explorer on my 'C' hard drive, and uninstalled firefox 3.5.5 and then reinstalled Firefox 3.5.5, but the Toggle Toolbar returns to Firefox home page.

How can I eliminate the Toggle files or uninstall as there is no uninstall option that I can find.

Check the Home page settings.

See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Preferences_not_saved and How to fix preferences that won't save

See also How to set the home page - Firefox supports multiple home pages separated by '|' symbols

You may also have to check the pref keyword.URL
