I can't delete Firefox from my iMac. The app won't drag to the trash. It wouldn't update, so I have been trying to completely uninstall before re-installing.

Posted

My Firefox wasn't updating. It would just hang there like it was downloading and updating but never finished no matter how long I waited. So, I want to delete it completely and try installing new.

I have made Safari my default browser, made sure that Safari is NOT running and have deleted the profile. I try to drag the icon from the app folder, but it doesn't go into the trash bin.

HELP me please!
