It appears I have "Silk Privacy Pass" in firefox and I never put it there - I can't remove it

more options

I've discovered it has something to do with Amazon.

I didn't know I had it until I just migrated to Windows 10 and a new firefox update occurred.

Even then, my only clue is a little orange "triangle" that shows up at the top line of the 'hamburger' menu at the top right on the screen. When I clicked on it, I got a message saying "Silk Privacy Pass wants to update".

I went to my installed extensions/themes screen and there is nothing about a silk extension or add-on.

It also showed up when I looked in the startup configuration and it showed it was loading during startup there. I disabled it. But today I just got the orange triangle again an hour ago wanting me to let it update.

I want it gone!! Especially when it showed up on my system without my asking or knowingly agreeing to it.


FWIW, I also ran Agent Ransack (search utility) on the drives and "Silk" does not come up as a file name for an app, DLL or any other file.

Can you post/attach the extensions list from your "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page?

If you go to this page on the Add-ons site, and the site finds a matching extension, the "Add to Firefox" button should change to a "Remove" button:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/privacy-pass/

(If it has the same name but it's not actually the same extension internally, you won't see the button change.)

I should have mentioned that. I'd already found that.

The "Add to Firefox" button changes to an "Enable" button.

Not a "Remove" button.

Strange.

Oh, I guess I didn't check a page for a disabled extension.

What do you think about Enabling it and then Removing it?
