I installed the Pinterest "Pin It" button and then I disabled it. But that didn't stop it from continuing to appear every time I went hovered an image. So I deleted the addon. But that doesn't make it go away either. How do I get rid of it once and for all?

Have you restarted Firefox since you deleted the add-on?

Do you remember which Pinterest add-on that it was?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window

Hello zillamobster,

Would you try this please :

Enable the add-on again, and then follow these instructions :

Does that work ?
