How to Uninstall Firefox in Windows 7

By C. Taylor

Mozilla Firefox is a feature-rich alternative to Windows 7's default Internet Explorer, but it is not for everyone. If you decided to give Firefox a try but do not want it installed anymore, you can uninstall it from Windows 7 through the Control Panel. This will remove all components of Firefox, including history, bookmarks and add-ons.

Step 1

Close Mozilla Firefox. If you receive an error that Firefox is still running, right-click the Windows taskbar, and select "Start Task Manager." Click "Firefox" in the list of running processes and click "End Process." This forces Firefox to end.

Step 2

Click the "Start" button, and type "uninstall a program" (without quotes).

Step 3

Click "Uninstall a program" in the search results.

Step 4

Click "Mozilla Firefox" in the list of installed programs.

Step 5

Click "Uninstall" at the top of the program list, and click "Uninstall" again in the confirmation window.
