    "Be Careful - This can't be removed unless you pay them."

    February 18, 2010  |   By as-df

    Pros

    Looked like it might work, but when i installed it didn't work as well as most other products in this class.

    Cons

    This product CANNOT be disabled or uninstalled without paying to register the product.
    One star is too many.

    Summary

    This is NOT free, and it is NOT trial ware. If you install it you will have to pay.

    It cannot be uninstalled or turned off without registering the product, which will cost you -- either in money paid for a product you don't want, or in time removing and reinstalling Firefox to get Foxfilter out of there (which I cannot guarantee will work as I won't have time to do until the weekend).

    Be 100% certain that you want this BEFORE you install it.

    -=-=-=-=-

    The documentation says that you can remove it by going to add-ins and uninstalling it. I tried this several times, and it wouldn't work.

    When I dug deeper in the documentation, it said that the options to modify disable, or uninstall the products are turned off until you register it (presumably to secure the product).

    Taken together, this says that either I pay them $10 to register the product just long enough to uninstall it, or I reinstall Firefox to get it out that way.

    Paying their extortion is probably your cheapest option.
