I have some old Java Console programs (6.0.20 6.0.21 6.0.22) that still reside in my Add-Ons box. I have not been able to get them to delete or clear out.

I may have to uninstall Firefox and lose all my settings in order to get the Add-Ons box to drop those old entries. At least, I suppose that would work.

My question is: Is there a way to clear out the Add-Ons box without having to uninstall Firefox?

This started happening after I upgraded to 3.6.15 this week. I happens in Firefox but not in Google Chrome.

When I click on a link in gmail it goes to https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&view=bsp&ver=ohhl4rw8mbn4 A blank screen and the status says "done." This happens with old emails that worked before my upgrade. If I right-click and select "Open link in new window" it goes to the correct page.

After the computer has been switched on for a while and I try to access the internet - it fails to do so and the message I get is : -General Failure - followed up by the specific address/site which it cannot open. This is happening with increasing frequency especially when I try to open email links etc. I then switch off the computer and after a few minutes or even half and hour, i reboot and it then becomes possible to open whatever was not possible before. This is quite irritating however.

The Coupon Buddy show up in my predefined components list in the toolbar options when I right click on my toolbar... there are other things in the list such as Bit Torrent Youtube Games and Music... and for every thing in the list the delete option is greyed out. I have searched the web for info on the coupon buddy but I cant come up with anything. I have kept my Avast Anti virus updated as well as my spybot search and destroy and scans have not come up with anything wrong. I am not sure when this found its way on to my computer and it is not listed within the programs and features within the windows control panel.
