problems uninstalling


we followed the directions on the uninstall firefox web browser page. including the part where you go to the uninstall folder on the c: drive and use the helper application to uninstall firefox. this does not work because a popup box displays an error message saying "can't initialize plugin please try again later." we tried restarting the computer and redoing all these exact steps again only to get the same problems and error messages.
