how do I remove BlockSite from Firefox?

Posted

When I opened the browser today, a message from BlockSite popped up asking if I would "help study internet use." I clicked "no." Now Blocksite blocks every website. I can only ise firefox in "safe mode." How do I uninstall the d*** thing from my browser? This was not happening before.

Chosen solution

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.
