How do I delete preference entries in about:config?

Posted

I have some entries that were added when I installed Zoom Player. These entries refer to a search engine called "conduit". How do I get rid of these entries?

You can right-click prefs that you no longer need and use Reset in the right-click context menu. They will be removed on the next start of Firefox.

Alternatively you can edit them out of the prefs.js file.

Hello Datalyss, also try to use the SearchReset add-on to reset some preferences to the default values (the add-on only runs one tome and then uninstalls automatically).

thank you
