I've just completed development of a new website, and was strting to think I had made some mistakes, because of problems viewing it in Firefox; however I dont see these issues on any of my other computers. (2 Linux, 5 Windows from XP to Windows10) or any other browser.


So basically its a Firefox issue. In safe mode (no plugins) its fine.  I've refreshed FF with nothing to show progress, just lost a load of settings etc.


I'd like to remove the old plug-ins (they are already marked as "Ask to activate" and never do ask.)


Why is it SO HARD???


This has been an issue for many years now - surely there is an easy way to get rid of extinct unwanted plug-ins?


All help appreciated

Hello, and Welcome.


Type about:plugins in the address bar of Firefox. Look at the path. Browse to the plugin folder and delete the plugin shown in the path.
