I recently updated ZoneAlarm and now I have a Zone Alarm toolbar stuck at the top of my Firefox window.

Anyone know how to permanently delete it?

A friend here in Seattle suggested I look in Windows Settings>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs.

And guess what?

There it was!

Now it's history!!

Dun!

Normally Firefox extensions are listed in Firefox in "Tools->Add-ons -> Extensions" regardless of whether Firefox is on Windows, Linux Mac or another OS.

The Complaint Department at Mozilla (current complaints) (<It is not a real complaint site but for jokes/testing of bugzilla).
The Complaint department link is borked until unknown time.

(For the record)
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Uninstalling_toolbars
ZoneAlarm Spy Blocker toolbar: If you install ZoneAlarm and do not uncheck the "Spy Blocker" toolbar option, the Spy Blocker toolbar for IE and Firefox will be installed, which includes the Ask.com searchbar. [5] To remove this toolbar, click on the ZoneAlarm logo in the toolbar to open a drop down panel that includes an uninstall function. [6].

Windows Control Panel

Depending on how the unwanted toolbar was installed, you may be able to uninstall it from the Windows Control Panel list of installed programs ("Add or Remove Programs" list). The ZoneAlarm "Spy Blocker" toolbar can be removed this way. [7]
