My email address is in the bookmarks toolbar and has been hacked. How do I remove it from the toolbar?

Posted

I put my email address in the bookmarks toolbar so it would be readily accessible, but my email account was hacked. I no longer use that email address. Nothing in the Firefox troubleshooting info I can find tells me how to REMOVE an item from the bookmarks toolbar, only how to rearrange items already there. I want to remove that email address from the bookmarks toolbar. Running Firefox version 3.6.16 on an iMac using OS 10.5.8.

Chosen solution

True - control + click is the Mac way to right click. I'm happy that worked.

Right click the item, choose to "Delete".

Question owner

My iMac mouse doesn't have "left" and "right" click buttons, only a single mouse button. However, your suggestion led me to try "control>click" on the bad email address, and when I held down the "control" key while clicking on the bad email address, a menu came up that included "delete." I did, and it worked, so in a not-quite-direct way, your suggestion solved the problem.
