Hello, I keep reinstalling Firefox to try get a completely clean copy of it but some stupid fucking 'Import Wizard' is automatically giving me my previous stuff back which I don't want, and I have no idea how to stop it doing it.

Please assist community, I am loosing my temper with this bullcrap wizard!!!

When you uninstall Firefox, your data stays on your computer. That means that when you reinstall Firefox, all of your past bookmarks and stuff will automatically be available.

If you want to start off fresh, you need to use the Firefox Profile Manager to remove your existing profile from your computer. Then simply create a new one and you will get a fresh profile without any of your existing data in it.

Hope this helps.
