I've been having problems with Mozilla's latest version for months. It suddenly would cause the whole system to re-boot. Then my bookmarks were gone. This occurred several times.

Recently, it caused an Enhanced On-access Anti Malware Protection erro message, as well as, making the entire computer a mess. So, I uninstalled two versions of Mozilla that were on my system. One version uninstalled via add/remove programs. The other did not, nor did it respond to it's own uninstall. Finally, I just deleted to the recycle bin.

Today, because my family seems to want Mozilla, I again downloaded and installed the latest version. To my surprise, all my tabs were still in place as was the theme I was using. So, I guess I really didn't get all of Mozilla uninstalled.

Any ideas how I can REALLY get all of Mozilla off my computer?

In particular the section about removing profile data as well as the program.

I uninstalled Mozilla from my Windows XP, but still get the 'Security Error: Domain Name Mismatch'! They are all 'trusted sites'! I even got the pop-up on while on this site! It crashes my computer and freezes it to the point it enters 'safe mode'! I have done a Destructive PC Recovery on the system 9x in one week! C'mon! I still can't get rid of it! I want it off my computer! I can't read my e-mail! I can't do my banking! I can't send in my exams for school! I can't do my job! All because of Mozilla? You people need to either make a patch to fix the issue, or make it easy to remove from the computer! I'm not hiring anyone to do this either! And this IS a new computer too! I can't believe this Mozillla is such a nightmare to deal with! I WANT IT OFF MY COMPUTER FOREVER! And, I'm not going to buy anything because I can't do my job so I can't get paid!

Look, the problems you're having are not related to any Firefox install you had.

If you have problems uninstalling Firefox, see

Just like posted by Quarantine above.

This thread is from 2007. Closing this thread.

Read threads before ranting. Also we are not Mozilla.

Did you know the rather old Netscape version your using was based on Firefox 1.0.5 ?
