How do I delete an add-on?

Posted

The add-on LyricXeeker 1.125 has been added to my add-ons and now Delta Search comes up every time I open a new tab. I want to delete this add-on, but the only options I have is to enable or disable the add-on. How can I delete the add-on?

Extensions that do not have a "Remove" button are installed by other software and are not under control of the Firefox extension manager.
Such globally installed extensions are usually found via a registry scan or are installed in a location that Firefox scans for installed extensions.

Extensions installed this way need to be removed via the settings (options/preferences) of the program that has added this extension or you need to uninstall this program via the Control Panel.
In Firefox you an only disable such an extension.

It sounds like you have a third party program that has taken over your search engine, home page, and/or the default new tab page. Fortunately, this can be remedied easily:

install the Search Reset Tool. This will remove the traces of this program from Firefox.

and remove a possible user.js file in your profile folder

For further information, please read Remove a toolbar that has taken over your Firefox search or home page.
