I have been trying to rid my system of FlashGot for 2 days now. I followed the directions and removed it from my add-ons list (Tools\Add-ons\FlashGot\Uninstall). I have also removed any instance I can find of it in about:config. Everything seems fine until I reboot my computer. Whenever I restart, the fricking thing is back and that stupid webpage is there when I open Firefox. I have tried Norton GoBack but I noticed that it gets reinstalled everytime Windows is restarted. I am thinking that I need to erase whatever was put onto my computer when I accidentally clicked OK to download it because I think that it is telling my system to install it every time I boot up. I have done a computer-wide search for "flashgot" and deleted everything I found relating to it. I reinstalled Firefox a bazillion times. I don't know what else to do to get rid of thing. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

Does it open if you run Firefox in safe mode?
Start> Mozilla Firefox> Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode).
Next, create a new profile and see if that helps.
When you uninstall Firefox, it doesn't delete your profile folder.
