I need help identifying and removing FF plugins

Hello all,



I just found, with the help of CC some odd plug-ins in my FF browser, (and yes 100% up to date) that makes me very concerned that they are there and that i cannot remove them, and I have no idea how they got there.


I can disable them, but they return enabled every time i open FF.


Please see screenshot:


The ones in question are:


baidu search engine (Chinese)


hot-fix-update-xpi-intermediate


web compat (reporter)




I need to ID these, and if necessary figure out how to remove them.

Go to "Help>Trobleshooting" to find the names of the extension since some will install with names such as: {1823e248-6bf4-f6f1-7901-65a68e8b6c1e}
With firefox closed go to your "Profile folder>Extensions" and delete the three needed.

I followed your suggestion and all It did was remove my theme, which i am still searching for to restore it as I like. The main threat is the Chinese search engine which has me very worried that i cannot remove it.
