Remove YouTube Downloader from Firefox

Whenever there is a video to watch on any website I get this "link" superimposed over the controls at the bottom right corner of the window that takes me to a bs website if I click on it : http://keep-tube.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FcvjgZWZoeWg%3Fwmode%3Dtransparent%2...

How can I get rid of it? I can show you a screen grab of what it looks like if you tell me how to upload it.

Re: Remove YouTube Downloader from Firefox

Thanks, that was the first thing I tried but I couldn't find an extension with the name "You Tube Downloader" or "Keep-Tube" or anything similar to what I was seeing on the video. So I tried disabling them one at a time and the culprit an extension called "Page Break 1.0.5 " . Thanks for your help

Re: Remove YouTube Downloader from Firefox

In order to uninstall a possibly unwanted extension, please do the following:

  1. From the Firefox window click the Firefox button at the top left and select Add-ons, or, if the Firefox button is not shown, click the Tools menu and click Add-ons.
  2. Once the Add-on Manager has opened in a new tab, click the Extensions button on the left side of the window.
  3. You should now see a list of your installed extensions on the right side together with buttons on the right side of each extension.
  4. To remove an extension from Firefox, simply click the Remove button. You should see a message that informs you about the successful removal of the add-on.
  5. Note that some add-ons require a Firefox restart to be removed completely. To perform a Firefox restart after the add-on removal, click the Restart now link in the message.
