With the newest version of Firefox being sent as an update to everyone you’ll notice a brand new icon at the top of your browser. This is for Firefox Hello, Mozilla’s competitor to Skype. While it’s nice that Mozilla is working on new projects that might turn out cool it’s not that great that they’ve forced everyone into adding the “Hello” program and icon to their Firefox browser without asking permission.
Here’s how to remove it:
- Click on the “Hamburger” icon (looks like three horizontal lines near the address bar)
- Click Customize.
- Now drag the Firefox Hello icon to the “Additional Tools and Features” section
And bam! Your firefox is back to normal. No more annoying new software you never agreed to installing.
