How to Disable Firefox Add-ons

Need to disable some Firefox Add-ons? Personally speaking, I would consider add-ons to be themes, plugins and extensions you add to Firefox.  If you need to troubleshoot a problem with the browser, disabling the Firefox add-ons you have added can sometimes be the quickest way to find the problem.

Here are the steps you will need to follow:

  1. At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button, and then click Add-ons. The Add-ons Manager tab will open.

  2. In the Add-ons Manager tab, select the Extensions or Appearance or Plugins panel.
  3. Select the add-on you wish to disable.
  4. Click the Disable button.
  5. Click Restart now if it pops up. Your tabs will be saved and restored after the restart.

To re-enable the add-on, find it in the list of Add-ons and click Enable, then restart Firefox.  The real benefit with just disabling an add-on is you can troubleshoot if it is causing a problem without removing it completely.
