Do you see any Inbox extensions in Tools > Add-ons > Extensions?

I have followed all the suggestions I could find to get rid of Inbox and finally deleted Firefox and plan to reinstall but lost my preferences in the process. Whoever Inbox is should be scorned - they know what they are doing and it sucks!!!

We had the hardest time getting rid of the inbox toolbar on our mac. We tried uninstalling/reinstalling, deleting all the add-ons, and it still wouldn't go away. We FINALLY got rid of it by doing the following:

Quit Firefox While holding down the Option key, click to open Firefox This will open up a window that gives you the option to restart Firefox in safe mode and restore some stuff I checked the first 2 and last 2 boxes on the little menu that popped up to disable all add-ons, reset toolbars and controls, reset all user preferences to Firefox defaults and restore default search engines Clicked "Make Changes and Restart"

Tada! Hasta la vista, Inbox.toolbar

Hi I just ran into this problem. I went to my "System Restore" and went back 2 days before. and it removed it. Had to re-do some minor things as on my Tool Bar. But worth it. Never download anything you don't want permanently. Hope this helps.
