How di I delete/remove old Java Console from the addon list?

Posted

How di I delete/remove old Java Console from the addon list?

Chosen solution

go to "c:\program files\Mozilla Firefox\extensions" or wherever you have installed ff

there you will find a few folders

check out the ones beginning with "{CAFEEFAC"

{CAFEEFAC-0016-0000-0023-ABCDEFFEDCBA} this one would be version 6.0.23

{CAFEEFAC-0016-0000-0024-ABCDEFFEDCBA} version 6.0.24 and so on

just delete the corresponding folder and restart firefox!


now for the ones that want to make sure that you're deleting the right thing: inside these folder you will find a file called "install.rdf". open it with notepad. search for "em:name". you should find "Java Console". ok, no you know you're in the correct folder for the java add-on. next step is to search for "em:version". this should give you "6.0.23" or something similar. if this is the old version showing up in your add-on manager then just delete the corresponding {CAFEEFAC-folder. you can even do this with ff running, but will have to restart to make the old entry disappear. if not, just check out the other ones until you find the version you want to get rid of.

hope this helps

cheers!
