remove swagbucks toolbar from firefox, It does not show a swagbucks toolbar in my computer add/ remove programs. It is only on firefox and not on IE or Chrome. It is in firefox. I want it gone, not disabled, gone!!
I made the mistake of downloading swagbucks toolbar a couple of days ago. I know how to disable it from 'view'. I want it gone. It is only on Fire fox, not on IE or Chrome. I can uninstall firefox and not see the SB tool bar on any other browser. If I reinstall Firefox there it is again. Swagbucks does not offer an uninstall program, which shows they are not a reputable organization. They're download is specifically set up for Firefox, which means that Firefox must have a solution to "remove" the offender. Swagbucks is spyware/adware pure and simple. It does not show up in my add/remove program files, only in firefox. They must go!!!
Thank you, Bishop Knight

No information on this situation, ( I find that hard to believe)
Have you looked in Tools > Addons > Extensions?
If it isn't there by the name of Swagbucks, maybe that's the SearchToolbar/1.2 showing in your UA?
THANK YOU! I'm hoping that helps my browser work better by removing Swagbucks toolbar & disabling AVG toolbar
