I carelessly installed Yahoo! toolbar while installing a program that for some reason comes with it. I uninstalled the toolbar from Add/Remove programs, but it still exists. I can go to View, Toolbars and turn it on. There is also a Yahoo! menu item between Bookmarks and Tools. Also when I right click inside of Firefox, there is a Yahoo! option. It mostly bothers me because I didn't even want to install it at all. It bothers me even more because I uninstalled it and everything is still there. I just want all traces of Yahoo! out of my Firefox. Can I do this without uninstalling Firefox?

Thanks

I'm guessing that it is an add-on. In Firefox:; Tools - Add-ons - Extensions - if Yahoo! is there uninstall it. Then look at Plugins and see if there is any Yahoo! stuff to disable there.

So far I have been lucky--have discovered it each time before it sneaked in with Java or whatever.
