Every time I update Firefox it tells me to update Adobe Flash but I have never been able to do it. I go to the Adobe Download page, attempt to install it on Firefox and it says please shut down conflicting program Mozilla Firefox. How the hell am I supposed to install it on the browser then: very frustrating

I downloaded a You Tube downloader, and expected an icon to come up when You Tube was playing, according to a friend's advice.

Since this didn't happen I assumed the download didn't work, or was an old version that doesn't work anymore. I wanted to just get rid of it and try another downloader.

I went to Tools--> Add-ons--> and clicked on the downloaded software and saw the 2 options [Disable] and [Uninstall]. The terminology is unclear, as I've always thought once software resides on your computer you can install it or uninstall it without erasing it from the computer.

A simple question that seems obvious except to someone who wants to be very precise and sure. Basically "does [Uninstall] mean erase from the computer"?

Thanks

I have removed the old Java Updates (17/19/21) from my Program and Features list(Win7). They still appear in the Tools>Add-ons>Extensions list. How do I remove them?

In both SAFE and Regular browser windows, the UNINSTALL button is grayed out.

I have tried in SAFE MODE, as well as the Help>troubleshooting Information>Application Basics>Profile Directory>Open Containing Folder,,,(looked, nothing there),,,,in both SAFE and Regular browser windows.

I recently purchased my laptop from my previous employer and had a new local profile established for my personal use. All documents/etc from the original profile are still on the hard drive and I was curious if I can copy all of the extensions/add-ons I had installed on Firefox to my new profile so I don't have to go out and re-download everything.
