FOr some reason, Firefox refuses to let himself be deleted through wndows when given the option to add or remove programs. FIREFOX WIL NOT BUGE. I no longer need this browser, i rarely use it, it just is wasted space

We don't want to see users go so we like to know if we can help you in any way first. What error message are you getting when you are trying to uninstall Firefox? Did you have a read on Uninstall Firefox from your computer ?

Question owner

Simple. Is it not simple? firefox is in such dire need of numbers that they forcefully try to keep users by NOT ALLOWING to opt out of using their sub par browser? I practice law, and this is, in one way or another, a case I would glady battle, and win. UNINSTALL THE BROWSER.

Users are allowed to uninstall at any time as they wish. You must be experiencing issues uninstalling, this should not be happening. We do not force anybody. We have provided you with some questions to answer as well as some troubleshooting. This if for you to respond to and troubleshoot your issue. At this moment, we CANNOT uninstall your browser for you, you must do that yourself. We are trying to assist you but it seems like you are refusing our assistance.

Thank You!
