I do not have 'Iminent' in my list of programs to uninstall. I want rid of the thing ! HOW?


I have been using Firefox for several years and have enjoyed it, first off; however, I have become aggravated enough with the last 2 updates to ditch it, if it can't act right.

I have tired to uninstall that pesky Iminent search, followed instructions for removal, only to find it is NOT in my program line up so I cannot uninstall it !! What do I do now? I have totally taken Firefox 9.01 out, hoping it would allow me to get rid of this pesky, obtrusive thing that keeps coming up rather than my home page ! I do not like it !! I want rid of it.

Also with my last 2 updates or upgrades, I lost the very best program add on I had, "Norton Toolbar" !! It kept all my accounts ids log in information, and gave me info about the pages I was in doubt about. Now I have Norton 360, 5.0, have had it updated so I could run it on this 9. and 9.01, and it isn't even in the line up for add on. I was even using Firefox as my default most of the time, now there is no way I will with this going on.

More Information

The page never completes when i try to get into "Manage Add Ons", so that i can unload these "Plugins" I have never had to choose plug ins for Firefox, and don't even know why they were all marked. I have to be able for the page to load before i can ever get into the manage add ons and plug ins and unplug them all.

Iminent search

  1. Reset your home page (if the search page is displayed when starting Firefox): http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/How+to+set+the+home+page
    • You can reset to the default by clicking "Restore to default" on Options > General > Startup > Home page. Be sure to set "When Firefox starts" to "Show my home page" on that same panel.
  2. Reset your Location Bar search engine (if typing a few words in the URL/Location Bar takes you to Ask search):
