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.
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 !!!!
click on top left of firefox,search for addons,below it is options,click on it and simply uncheck yahoo toolbar,it will disappear immediately.
finally found how to remove the Yahoo toolbar! go to
Tools AddOns Extensions
Find Yahoo Toolbar and click "remove" ... after you do this you must re-start Firefox but then it's gone!!
tried all sorts to get rid of the yahoo search,but non worked,then at the last resort i deleted Firefox,opened "regedit" and removed all traces of Mozilla Firefox from the registry,then re-installed Firefox and success........good riddance to yahoo search.
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...
