Hi there, just as the title says I'm looking for some help removing this GoSave browser add-on that keeps opening so many pop-up ads in Firefox. Any help or guidance would be very much appreciated.
 
Thanks so much

Hello, and Welcome

 

Is Gosave listed in your extensions? Click settings > add-ons. If it is listed select remove.

Hi John,

 

Thanks for the quick response. It was listed under Add-Ons, and I did remove it, but it still seems to be working. As I type this, my screen is being flooded with ads and the line right under the subject heading of your response reads: "The Summer's 29 Most Embarrassing Celebrity Photobombs."

Yes, do the scan and then press the clean button but first create a System Restore Point and also create a System Repair Disk.
