    Default How to remove firefox

    Howdy,
    I've put firefox in drive K/ without a sub folder.
    Eg. I probably should have done K/Firefox or something.

    It now won't show in Add/Remove programs.
    And the files are scattered in my K drive so I'm not sure what to delete as I don't want to mess things up.
    Can't find an uninstall.exe either in there...

    Any suggestions?

    (I've installed to correct location and it has add/remove option for that new installation, but still have other version in K drive)

    Make a note of the files in the correct location.
    Delete the matching files in the K drive.

    Several ways to deal with it:

    1) Sort the files and folders according to "Date Modified". That way, all the associated Firefox data will be sorted according to the time when they were unpacked from the installation file.

    2) Install Firefox on C:\Program Files, then compare and contrast the files / folders with the ones on K:. Delete as appropriate.

    3) Follow what GameJunkie suggested.

    Awesome
    Ran cleaner and tidied stuff up.
    Uninstalled the good firefox and ran cleaner again.
    Badly placed version then showed up in Add/Rem as being in K drive and uninstalled!
    Awesome (again)

    Taught me everything I know about life...
