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???)

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.

Up until Version 6.0.2 FF supports the following command via the address bar "javascript:window.resizeTo(1280,1024);". In version 7.0.1 and in the beta version 8 - this is no longer supported. I use this all day in my role as a project manager to test web pages in different screen resolutions and I've had to downgrade back to 6.0.2 just for this feature.

Has the support for this been withdrawn permanently or is there a way to enable it in v7 or v8?

Thanks.

"AVG Secure Search" is obviously a kind of malware that attaches itself to FF. Is Mozilla working on killing it?

In older version you could hide the or delete subscribe to this page option in the bookmarks menu bar option and the same for unsorted book makrs option. Also I would like to remove some of the spaces that surround these option in the menu.

I'm talking about the menu bar with the menu item bookmarks.

All of these options in the menu for book marks makes for a lot of unnecessary scrolling to of the bookmarks menu in either direction(up or down). I find it very annoying that there is NO option to either hide these items of to just out and out delete!

The tool bar I'm talking about has this list on it.

File Edit View History Bookmarks Tools Help

Now on this menu bar in the drop down bookmarks menu is where I want to get rid of or hide the above mentioned items which you use to be able to do.
