When ADWCleaner finds an item in the Firefox JS files, do the items listed, picture attached, does it remove just a line item or does it remove the whole JS file ( that would be serious)?

 

I tried to do this question at Adwcleaner but struggled with French and their system.

 

Thanks

Good evening. :)

I don't know the answer, but you could copy and paste the files in question somewhere safe and then run the removal tool and see what happens. If the files disappear then all you have to do is copy and paste them back and all is well.

 

I'd be interested to know what happens if you find the time.


So long, and thanks for all the fish.
