did you know webwebweb prevents the "Manage search engines" dialogue from saving if you delete it as a search engine ? How to fix this ?

Posted

webwebweb installs as part of the (now defunct ?) videodownloader professional. It seems to also take over the search engine options in Firefox. I cannot delete it from the list.

Hello PeterAKNZ, try to disable videodownloader and check it again.

if you paid for videodownloader (professional) then you have in your profile a User.js file. The user.js file does not exist by default. If you create the file, forget it, if you have not created then try to delete the User.js file, to see if the problem goes away (it happens some programs to create the file).

thank you
