I am running Windows 7 Firefox 17.0.1. There is an add-on called "Divx Plus Web Player HTML5 <video> 2.1.2.145" that is suspicious. Don't know how it got there and, while I can disable it, there's no way to remove it.


Thanks.

Is it in Add/Remove Programs? Divx is a legit media player. Maybe you needed it to view a particular video.

No, there it is not in add/remove or in Revo Uninstaller. There is also no 'remove' button in the add-on listings. I know Divx is a legit codec but this one is suspicious.
