firefox added a "search bar" as a tab. I don't want it. How do I get rid of it?

Posted

This was solved a long time ago. I previously flagged it as solved. I continue to get suggestions.. I don't need them. I've tried "unsubscribe" too, but I still get answers. NO FURTHER ANSWERS ARE NEEDED. Thank you. recently Firefox installed a search bar in line with my tabs. I don't want it and can't find how to get rid of it.

I tried all the manual removals only to be left with Funmoods showing up as intermittent search engine. Firefox version 15 Go to Help: Troubleshooting Information; Reset Firefox

I've done EVERYTHING that was up there and no luck, maybe I'm doing something wrong. But I'm pretty sure I followed the instructions correctly.

Did you try safe mode for Firefox like jscher2000 suggested? If you follow his instructions exactly (read them several times) it should remove it; it was the only thing I could find that would completely remove it. Good luck

Hi jnoecker, sorry for the inconvenience. The "Stop email updates" link to the right of your original post should prevent notifications of new replies. If that is not working, we should have the board developers figure out why not.
