How do I get rid of wizebar?

Posted

I don't want this popup at the bottom of the window called wizebar. I didn't ask for it and don't remember anything asking me about it.

It is very annoying. If I can't rid of it I will be forced to use a different browser even if I would rather stay with Firefox

hello, other serach results for wizebar suggest that it might be bundled with the toolbar from the softonic download site. please go to firefox > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, etc). also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software.

Remove a toolbar that has taken over your Firefox search or home page

you could also try to run a program like adwcleaner to detect & delete common adware.
