Are you supposed to be able to remove Java Console from FF?

I have decided to remove all traces of Java from my system, but Firefox is giving me a problem. I know I have successfully removed Java from Windows and deleted any left over files using windows search. However, I noticed add-on Java Console 6.0.22 and I am can only disable or enable it. Is there a way to delete it?

Try running Firefox in the "Run As Administrator" mode. Then you should be able to uninstall from Tools > Addons.

Tried that but it does not work. I run FF as admin but I can still only disable/enable Java console, there is no option to delete/remove it

p.s. Using FF 4

Just for confirmation, if you go to your start menu > right-click on FF > select Run as Administrator it's not activating the delete button? If that's the case let me see if I can find something else short of editing the registry for all mention of Java.

Correct, running FF as admin does not enable delete of the Java Console in FF.

One more article that might help. See Step 2:

Quote:
Removing the JAVA Console extension(s) manually from within extensions folder in the Firefox install (NOT profile) folder. In most cases on Windows this is going to be C:\Mozilla Firefox\extensions. With Firefox not running, delete the folders which begin with {CAFEEFAC . . . . } from within this folder and then restart Firefox.

Think how boring life would be if computers did what we wanted them to do when we wanted them to do it!

solved! haha

I saw that fodler before but it said "chrome" inside it so I did not think it had anything to do with Java. Thanks so much
