How do I get rid of Blekko? Nothing suggested on here works

Posted

It seems to have installed with either AdAware Free of something else from CNet. None of the remedies suggested in other posts have worked, and neither does the Search Reset AddOn!

Where in Firefox are you seeing Blekko? Please provide a screenshot.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-create-screenshot-my-problem

It is best to use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot and make sure that you do not exceed a maximum file size of 1 MB.

Then use the Browse .... button below the Post a Reply text box to upload the screenshot.
