How do remove www.superfish.com permanently - it interferes whenever I open my Firefox browser ... no matter which website I wish to visit ?

Whenever I open my Firefox browser (7.0.1) and no matter which website I wish to visit, I see that during the open page process that (in the bottom left corner of my screen) a number of URL's start to load - before my desired website page opens. Depending on the number of such URL's, my desired website can take a long time to open. One of these URL's is "www.superfish.com" - I want to remove this permanently ... such that "www.superfish.com" never ever runs. When I look into my Firefox Add On's and my Firefox Plug In's, I find that "Superfish" does not list as installed on my computer. When I look into my Start/Programs, I also find that Superfish is not listed. When I go into Add/Remove Programs, I also find that Superfish is not listed.

HOW DO I REMOVE "SUPERFISH" ... PERMANENTLY?

(My computer is running on WINDOWS XP Professional ... fully Updated).

(NOTE: I originally posted my question some 2 weeks ago. To date, it would seem that no one in the Firefox Community has got the answer to my problem. Surely this cannot be so - when I Google on the subject, it would seem that many other Firefoxers have encountered this problem; but - NOBODY SEEMS TO HAVE THE SIMPLE SOLUTION!!! Who can help me (and all the others???)

The FireFox' disk cache foler is set to D:\Cache (I set it so from about:config).

I cleared the disk cache, watched a YouTube video (almost 2 minute long), then looked into D:\Cache. But the video I had watched was not there! (I found two .SWF files. But their sizes were smaller than 250K. And, stand-alone SWF players couldn't play them. Therefore, they can't be YouTube videos.)

So, where does Firefox cache videos?

It is quite a common event to send friends a lead into a web address for interesting articles or videos (Youtube urls). To do thjis means you do a copy and paste into the Email. When I was using Aol the address presented itself in bold type which allowed the recipient to just click on the address to be connected instead of doing a copy and paste into the address bar. Is there a way this can be done in Firefox?

We recently uninstalled a proxy website's filtering program. Now, Firefox will not open, but instead, gives the error message, "Failed to read the configuration file. Please contact your system administrator." I've reinstalled it with a reboot between uninstalling and reinstalling. That didn't work. I installed a previous version, that didn't work. Finally, I reinstalled it without keeping any of my settings and bookmarks and it still doesn't work. I've checked my firewall and it's in the exceptions. Deleted that and replaced it. All to no avail. Still scratching my head.

If I search for a product in Google Shopping using Firefox, the results display in US dollars. I live in the UK so want my results in UK sterling.

The problem doesnt not occur in google Chrome so it must be an issue with firefox.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

NB - For anyone else with the problem see below. I sorted the problem out myself.

I very often get this:

'The connection was interrupted Connection to the server was restored during the download page. The site may temporarily be down or busy. Please try again in a moment. If you can not open any page at all, check your computer network connection. If your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to connect to the web.'

And at the bottom there´s a button says, try again. Sometimes I've to try several times before the page is loaded. I haven't have had this problems before and it never come up in IE. I have broadband with 100Mb, maybe it's too fast? :-)
