The latest update to Firefox (14.0.1) has added something called "easy inline" which is very, very annoying. Please, anyone, how do I TURN IT OFF???

Posted

"Easy online" underlines random words on webpages and links them to unrelated articles or advertisements.

Chosen solution

Do you have something called Yontoo or Yontoo Layers installed in Firefox?
{Ctrl + Shft + A} to open the Addons tab.

How do I disable EasyInline?

EasyInline is easily disabled from the Yontoo App Market. From the Yontoo App Market you can turn on or off Yontoo features and apps. To disable EasyInline and no longer see EasyInline ads, just click the "App Enabled" button and it will be disabled.

How do I uninstall Yontoo and completely get rid of EasyInline and all Yontoo apps and ads?

If there's a single piece of functionality you no longer want, but still want to use others, consider disabling the specific Yontoo App individually from the Yontoo App Market.

Here's the instructions for turning it off - Prevent Firefox from automatically completing URLs

Set the Boolean pref browser.urlbar.autoFill to false on the about:config page.

Question owner

These answers have to do with auto completion of urls as they are entered. But that is not the problem. The problem is that the latest update to Firefox 14 causes words and phrases within accessed pages to be colored orange and underlined and those colored-underlined words phrases are then live links to unwanted advertising, mostly completely unrelated to the colored-underlined word or phrase. Some of the links are activated by rollover--they do not even need to be "clicked." This is a very, very annoying feature and there must be some way to disable it.

I do not recall having ever installed (or heard of) Yontoo. But I shall try to find it and see if it is what is causing this annoyance. Thanks.

It turns out that Yontoo (whatever that is) apparenly installed itself at the same time as the most recent Firefox update. I located and uninstalled Yontoo and the annoyance went away. Thank you Edmeister. I still cannot understand why anyone would voluntarily install a spam generator like the Yontoo "easy online" function or why Mozilla would allow it to impinge on Firefox' operation.

I have uninstalled Yontoo in the windows 7 control panel but I still have these unwanted easy inline ads popping up everywhere. There is nothing in plugins or extensions to disable . Please help me!

Try this:

http://download.yontoo.com/YontooUninstaller.exe

It worked for me and it took a long time to find it.

Thanks bitterbill, but no success (even after a reboot). It turns out it wasn't yontoo that was the source of my 'infection' but 1ClickDownloader which I hadn't removed because I thought it was a part of DownThemAll! which I find a very helpful add-on. Thanks to the advice at http://articlechase.com/beyondnews/showthread.php?tid=2500, I am now 'easy inline' free!

Hello, folks, I am infected with the *a-easyinline* horror, and EVERY single fix shown above has been tried by myself, to NO effect. Please; does anyone out there have any new ideas, about a-easyinline? I can't find it in XP searches, not on add-ons, nowhere does it show up to be dealt with!

Thanks so much for reading this!

*a-easyinline* isn't necessarily the same as EasyInline, which was being discussed in this thread.

This is the only thing I can can find about a-easyinline.

I have no idea what that is all about, but that page is for security researchers to safely unpack JavaScripts for examination.

My guess is that you picked up some Malware.


Install, update, and run these programs in this order. They are listed in order of efficacy.
(Not all programs detect the same Malware, so you may need to run them all to solve your problem.)
These programs are all free for personal use, but some have limited functionality in the "free mode" - but those are features you really don't need to find and remove the problem that you have.
Note: If your Malware infection is bad enough and you are mis-directed to URL's other than what is posted, you may have to use a different PC to download these programs and use a USB stick to transfer them to the afflicted PC.

Thank you so much for your swift reply; but my experience with a-easyinline is the exact same as described by numerous others above. It appeared with the new iteration of Firefox, not something I downloaded. It has the same characteristics as the others'; words with coloured, highlighted links to ads in my area. it is very annoying, and has to be dealt with, I'm un-impressed Mozilla chose to do this...Thanks again.


I removed oneclickdownloader, as noted above, this add-on seemed to be associated with a- easyinline, and am seeing some success in removing the un-wanted highlighted ads.

Mozilla didn't provide that garbage, something that you installed carried that garbage into Firefox.

Thank you for your reply. You might note that a large number of other people are describing the exact same problem; it's not unique to myself. Thanks again.

But of course the infuriating double underline ads reappeared. This time the pop-up windows were entitled "Adchoices" and they didn't seem to be related to a plug-in. I have installed AbBlock Plus from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=AdBlock+Plus&cat=all, which was quick and painless, reloaded the page, double-underlines gone - let's hope for good this time!
