I found a list of extensions for firefox and thought what the heck, lets give them a try, it I don't like them I can always delete them. Well, I now find that I don't want some of these, and am not able to figure out how to delete them. I even went so far as to uninstall firefox 1.5 and re-download it, ther're still there.

Can some one please tell me how to get rid of them?

Here is the short list:

Forecastfox
fasterfox
Scripts Partially Allowed (I especially would like to see this one gone)
Addblock
Fasterfox Page Loader Timer

These don't even show up in search.

(Moderator edit: thread move to more appropriate forum. jgweed)

Go to Tools/extensions. All of the installed extensions should be listed in the pop-down dialogue box.
Click on the ones you don't want and then click on "Uninstall" at the bottom left. You may need to close Ff and then launch it for this to take effect.

Regards,
John

You might want to look at the BBCode extension,dc3, since you post a lot in the forums. I can make text formatting a lot easier.
Cheers,
