Help me Nuke Firefox Plugins, Extensions, Addons

Tue Dec 06, 2016 12:35 pm

Guys, I keep uninstalling firefox, and using the approved method of removing settings. ut each time I reinstall firefox, there are the addons, the extensions, and the plug-ins. I need to nuke them all so I can get Firefox to start up normally. As it is I have to start it several times in a row untill it offers to start in "Safe Mode". Does anyone know how to nuke these pesky things so that I can start over fresh?

I know about this method of deleting user data and settings...
Remove user data and settings

The uninstaller does not remove any user data such as history or bookmarks. If you wish to completely remove this data, you must manually delete the Firefox folder containing your user profile:

Click the Windows Start button and select Run….
Type in %APPDATA% in the Run prompt then click OK.
Open the Mozilla folder.
Delete the Firefox folder.

My guess is that all these add-ons exist in other applications (e.g. Google Earth) and Firefox locates them and tries to load them. Kapersky's antivirus is responsible for most of them followed by Microsoft and Google.
