Categories: Joomla Tags: Toolbar – How to remove from Firefox

November 4th, 2009 No comments

Ever had that problem where the toolbar appear in your HTTP user Agent?   You tried to find it and remove it;  you tried “add/remove programs” in Windows; you looked in Firefox Addons – but you couldn’t find it!

Try this:

  • Open Firefox and in the address bar, enter “about:config” then hit enter.
  • Now, in the filter, enter “general:useragent”
  • You might find your user agent, containing the toolbar. If this is the case, right-click on the entry and choose “reset”.

(Always excercise caution when working with advanced settings).
