  • How to uninstall foxit addon for firefox?

    I am not happy with foxit's firefox addon. It fails to display some pdf files properly and it loads quite slowly IMO. I want to remove it.

    Now, surprisingly, there is simply no way to remove this stubborn addon! I've uninstalled foxit...Still it's there. It is not listed in the addons of firefox, still it is there.

    Please tell me how to remove this thing...

    Hi Bradex,

    First Please run as admin to do all the following things.To stop Foxit Reader from functioning inside the Firefox, please go to Foxit Reader install directory/Plugins folder, then go to "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins" and delete "npFoxitReaderPlugin.dll".
    Finally go to "start"->"Run"->type in regedit -> go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE"->"SOFTWARE"->"MozillaPlugins", delete the folders related with foxitsoftware related items under it. Thank you.
