If all your bookmarks are within your present version of Firefox;

1.) They should be.

2.) Yes.

3.) Go for it.

To uninstall entirely follow both steps here: Uninstall Firefox from your computer Uninstall Firefox using programs and features and the profile from appdata.

To uninstall Firefox, follow these steps:
  1. Open the Applications folder in Finder.
  2. Drag the Firefox application to the Trash.
Your uninstall of Firefox is finished.



In your link to uninstall Firefox, this seems to be the easiest. I am unable to find the one in bold above.

Are you sure you clicked on the proper link, maybe you were on a different tab?

When I click on this link, this is the URL of the page that opens:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...-your-computer

Here is a snip of the part that I am referring to. It is at the top of the page, just a few inches down:

It took me a while to figure this out;

There is some kind of re-direct going on that if I reduce the zoom factor on the page that link goes to I can see multiple instances of the uninstall link, my example:
Favicons: I Need To Find The File Path-melitaff.jpg

If I give it a few seconds it changes to this:
Favicons: I Need To Find The File Path-mff.jpg

And I can reproduce this in IE10 also. Once I reduced the zoom I couldn't get it to stop even if I reset the zoom to 100% or greater, it's just I couldn't see it?


The only thing I can tell you is to:
  • Try resetting your zoom to 100% if you run a different setting,
  • Try a setting more than 100%,
  • Wait a few more seconds until it changes by itself,
  • Try to refresh the page or
  • And follow the Removing user profile data section directly below the section explaining how to uninstall Firefox On Windows.

I was looking at the Firefox files, to be deleted, that are mentioned in the MozillaZine link you gave me. I opened some to have a look and closed them. When I closed my browser the following appeared on my desktop, uninvited. The .db file was not opened. The other two which looks identical, opened with Notepad.

Notice how they are grayed out. I include here, the 'Acer 5250' docx file, for grayed out appearance comparison. What should I do with these?

Nothing, I hope you didn't change anything when you opened the .db files in Notepad, you see both desktop.ini and the Thumbs.db will disappear when you change the Show hidden files folders and drives back to hidden in Tools >Folder Options >View Tab.

You will see them every time you set the view to Show files folders and drives. Those are the files that set your preferences for your desktop and the Thumbs hold the icon placemarks for your desktop icons.

Open up the view tab and move all open windows so you can see them. Make your change to hide them and when you click on Apply/OK they will disappear.

I have opened all the folders and looked at what I have to do. After doing everything in the Mozillazine link, I hope to use Internet Explorer (the only other browser I have, but rarely use), and download Firefox. Is this in order?

Sounds like you are well prepared.

One thing I might suggest is to print out any parts of the uninstall and or reinstall that may sound complicated, remember, when you install Firefox you will not have Internet Explorer to fall back on because you need to make sure you have all other programs closed including Internet Explorer to ensure a good install.

Thank you for telling me this! I don't have a printer but I can get it done in a day or two. I forgot to ask two more things.

*Do I leave just as they are, all icons and favicons on desktop and folders?

*Of the two options available in Firefox Library for saving Bookmarks, I exported using both options and saved in 'My documents'. The option "Backup" made a .json file in notepad format. The option "Export Bookmarks to HTML" made an .html file with a Firefox icon. The latter shows full details clearly and includes my Bookmarks Folders with their names as well. If you remember, I asked you about Folders earlier. The former (.json) is not easy to read and does not show folders at all. Which of these should I use when importing Bookmarks after clean installing Firefox, if I want to see all my Bookmarks with their Folders exactly as they were in my old Firefox.

Thank you
