How to remove View Password from Firefox?
When downloading something else, this add-on called View Password has been installed somehow. I get the option to Disable it in the Firefox Add-ons tab, but I do not get the option to remove it. How can I remove it completely?
Actually, I noticed it a little later in Control Panel, though I hadn't seen it there before, so I removed it that way after disabling it in Firefox. That seems to have solved it.Read this answer in context 3

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 "Control Panel > Programs".
In Firefox you an only disable such an extension.
