How do I permanently remove the Yahoo toolbar which simply appeared the other day and which I do not want?

The Yahoo toolbar simply appeared at start up the other day. I don't want it, won't use it, and want to get rid of it. The two suggestions on your Help didn't relate: Click on the "Pencil Menu"--what and where is that? Can't find anything that remotely appears to be a Pencil Menu. 2nd: Go to Tools, click on Extension--no such thing on my Tools menu anywhere.

Real help, please!

Fixed it! On the top left of the firefox screen there is a box marked "Edit". If you right click on this, you are given the option of selecting the toolbars displayed. If you uncheck Yahoo Toolbar, it disappears.

Firefox is great but these continual requests to install the Yahoo Toolbar makes me wonder if I shouldn't return to Windows Internet Explorer.

Hope this fixes the problem for you.

I opened my FF today and also found that the Yahoo toolbar had appeared. I don't want to hide it I want to remove it completely, however there seems to be no way to do this. Is one of the Fierfox add ons doing this? In the past I could uninstall but this is not possible this time.

SOLUTION FOUND!

By trial and error, I discovered how to solve this problem of removing the Yahoo! Toolbar from the Firefox Browser. This is how you do it: Make sure you are opened on Firefox Browser. Go to the TOP LEFT HAND corner of your screen. You will find a Label/Button with the name "Firefox". Put your cursor over "Firefox" button and "click" open the Firefox drop-down menu. On the RIGHT column of the menu you will see:

  Bookmarks
  History
  Downloads
  Add-ons
  Options
  Help

Scroll down to "Options" --> And then move to Open the Options sub-menu.

Scroll down Options sub-menu.

You will see:

    Options
    Menu Bar
    Navigation Toolbar
    Bookmarks Toolbar
    Yahoo! Toolbar
    Add-on Bar
    Tabs on Top
    Toolbar Layout

Scroll down to "Yahoo! Toolbar" and uncheck it.

Your Yahoo! Toolbar will then be automatically be removed from your Window.

Problem Solved !!!!

RavenIII's solution is the one you want to remove the Yahoo! Toolbar. All the other options simply "hide" or don't show the toolbar, however, it is still on your computer...
