How can I get rid of "easy inline"-type hyperlinks even after having removed both easy-inline and yontoo?

I'm using Firefox 18.0.

I searched the internet for a solution to my problem, and the closest result was Mozilla Support item titled "The latest update to Firefox (14.0.1) has added something called "easy inline" which is very, very annoying. Please, anyone, how do I TURN IT OFF???", from July 18, 2012.

I followed all recommendations but "random" phrases still become hyperlinks that display "balloon" ads on mouse-over. As for Yontoo, I do recall downloading some software over the summer that brought Yontoo along with it, but I've since uninstalled both. When I came across the support article, above, I followed the link to uninstall Yantoo, and performed it again.

Currently, neither "Yontoo", nor "Easy inline" appear as Firefox extensions or add-ons, and there are no folders or files by (or containing) those names anywhere on my hard drive.

Does anyone have a suggestion as to what this could still be, and how to get it turned off, once and for all?

Thank You

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.


Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.

Also able to re-load removed items (add-ins, etc.)

Thanks!
