In order to uninstall a possibly unwanted extension, please do the following:
- From the Firefox window click the Firefox button at the top left and select Add-ons, or, if the Firefox button is not shown, click the Tools menu and click Add-ons.
- Once the Add-on Manager has opened in a new tab, click the Extensions button on the left side of the window.
- You should now see a list of your installed extensions on the right side together with buttons on the right side of each extension.
- To remove an extension from Firefox, simply click the Remove button. You should see a message that informs you about the successful removal of the add-on.
- Note that some add-ons require a Firefox restart to be removed completely. To perform a Firefox restart after the add-on removal, click the Restart now link in the message.

Hi - thanks for the advice. I am sure it would have worked if I had not just after I posted the problem did a reset to default values of Firefox. That sorted out the problem. By the way I followed the first 3 steps of your advice and saw an entry posted that informed me that Zone Alarm Security Engine is incompatible with Firefox 17.0.1
