    [SOLVED] Cannot remove Firefox add-on


    Hello,
    Recently I installed FoxFilter add-on in Firefox. This add-on is not functioning properly, I cannot change preferences. Also it cannot be uninstalled from the Firefox add-ons interface. All buttons on FoxFilter are disabled.



    Is there another way to remove a Firefox add-on, and how?

    Thanks,
    Boris

    You need to start FF in safe mode.
    Code:
    /path/to/firefox/firefox -safe-mode
    This should allow you to make the necessary changes.
