search extensions wrongly marked as "acrive"
On page about:support I can see the following extensions marked as "active".
Modules complémentaires Nom Type Version Activé ID Amazon.co.uk extension 1.9 true email@example.com Bing extension 1.3 true firstname.lastname@example.org eBay extension 1.3 true email@example.com Google extension 1.1 true firstname.lastname@example.org
I can't find where this information comes from. How can I completely remove these from my FIrefox install? Thanks
"active" I mean, sorry
You cannot remove the built-in search engine extensions.
Mismatch between Extensions list and Shortcuts box in Settings
Firefox tracks the built-in search engine extensions in two data files. One is a registry of extensions and the other lists your enabled search engines. If you remove or hide search engines on the Settings/Options page, Search panel, that is recorded in the search engines file (search.json.mozlz4) but it doesn't affect the extension registry file (extensions.json). As far as Firefox is concerned, those extensions are always enabled even if you don't care to use them.
