I have a Blur add on installed, it came aong with an update from checkpoint (zone alarm), I do not want to use it but the option to remove it does not appear, only disable, how can I remove it completely?

Chosen solution

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.

See :

Extensions installed this way need to be removed via the settings (options/preferences) of the program that has added this extension or this program has to be uninstalled via "Control Panel > Programs". In Firefox you an only disable such an extension.
