How to Uninstall Add-ons in Firefox 4

Monday, October 11th, 2010

I realize that software engineers usually have good reasons for doing stuff like this, but it still bugs me when new versions of software make it harder to find features that were formerly much easier to find.

A lot of things are getting changed in the Firefox web browser. A big part are made up of interface changes, that are supposed to optimize the interaction of the user with the browser. The Firefox add-on manager for instance has been totally revamped, now loading up in a tab instead of a window.

But that’s not the only changes that Firefox 3 users need to get used to when it comes to the new add-on manager. Users who take a closer look at the information listed under extensions will notice that there are only buttons to open an add-on’s options, and to enable or disable it.
