Disable th ZoneAlarm Addon/Toolbar in firefox.

In order to uninstall a possibly unwanted extension, please do the following:

  1. 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.
  2. Once the Add-on Manager has opened in a new tab, click the Extensions button on the left side of the window.
  3. You should now see a list of your installed extensions on the right side together with buttons on the right side of each extension.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
