Hi Gurus,

I downloaded the latest Version of Google Toolbar & Mozilla Firefox came with it. Now when I save any mail with Attachment Mozilla Firefox Icon has taken over & opens it up.

Does anyone have this Mozilla Firefox please tell me what it actually does. If it's not worth this hassle I can uninstall/delete it.

Please Help.

You have done the same mistake that I did with FF. I downloaded FF from a Google pack site. That means that the browser is integrated with the google toolbar. Uninstall google toolbar from this browser and it makes FF virtually unusable.
FF downloaded from a Mozilla site is ok. Personally I would uninstall pronto but I can't advise if you would loose any data or not.

Rdave13,

Uninstalled Google Toolbar for Firefox & Firefox from Add/Remove. Firefox Icon gone from Desktop but still its Icon is in other Files/Programs.

Try running a reg cleaner. Ccleaner has one click here . Also run the windows cleaner. Used this prog for a while now and found no issues with it. Then reboot.
Have gone off Google toolbar and most of it's other programs with the exception of it's search engine. Still even that will spy on you.
Another excellent program to run is cleanup click here .

I prefer Firefox browser over IE7 and think having another browser is good practice...just incase your current browser becomes corrupt or any problems with it.
I think you will find most nowadays have at least two browsers on there systems.Firefox2 click here

Rdave13,skidzy,

SORRY!!! I was not able to reply immediately ... last night, after a hards days night and working like a ... I fell sleeping like a log. Been busy today too.

Thanks for your advise. Yes, nothing is really free, they take their liberties without us knowing.

I have CCleaner but I've heard that it could delete some of your personal data too. I don't know how far that's true. Windows Cleaner I don't have.

I have IncrediMail. Yes, I agree it's a good idea to have more than one browser.

Thanks you both for the Links I will try them.
