How do I get rid of wizebar?

I don't want this popup at the bottom of the window called wizebar. I didn't ask for it and don't remember anything asking me about it.

It is very annoying. If I can't rid of it I will be forced to use a different browser even if I would rather stay with Firefox

Try the Following:

Scan for Malware

Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.

You can try some of the following programs to scan for malware:

Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Reset Firefox

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.

Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.

A simple add-on for firefox does a great job at stopping this problem.Adblock Plus 2.1.2! This instantly blocked wizebar from my wife's computer and never seen it again! Click the firefox tab>add-on's>get add-on's,type in search bar for Adblock Plus 2.1.2 & download.Should clean-up the problem! Thanks.

Re: How do I get rid of wizebar?

hello, other serach results for wizebar suggest that it might be bundled with the toolbar from the softonic download site. please go to firefox > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, etc). also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software.

Remove a toolbar that has taken over your Firefox search or home page

you could also try to run a program like adwcleaner to detect & delete common adware.
