I am sorry I have to write you.
I have a lot on my plate. My husband has cancer and I accidentally downloaded this tool bar got the toolbar off but the google search is still on my page when I open up instead of my aol page.
This is becoming a BIG PROBLEM because I have contact with the hospital and doctors.
Please tell me how to get it off. It is not in my control panel under anything by your name. If that is from deleting tool bar or not I dont know I put down toolbars I dont know if it was right choice or not Please advice asap

I'm having trouble putting together the whole story from your current comments and earlier comments. I'm going to suggest trying Firefox's Safe Mode.

First, I recommend backing up your Firefox settings in case something goes wrong. See Backing up your information. (You can copy your entire Firefox profile folder somewhere outside of the Mozilla folder.)

Next, close Firefox. Hold the Shift key on the keyboard and start Firefox. You should get a small dialog with the option to disable or reset various things. This article has a picture of it: Safe Mode.

Check the first two boxes: add-ons and toolbars. Then Continue in Safe Mode. Does Firefox appear normally and operate correctly? If so, you can close Firefox and restart Normally and hopefully that fixes it.

If not, please describe in more detail what is going wrong.
