I'm not a programmer. I don't know very well Firefox add-ons. So, you can use this extension at your own risk. :-)

To configure and customize this extension, it is supposed:
  • you know where Firefox extensions are installed on your system i.e. /home/user/.mozilla/firefox/muwypw2y.default/extensions on Linux and Solaris or C:\Document and settings\user\Application data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\fj5drt33.default\extensions\ under Windows

  • you are able to edit files (using vi, gedit, wordpad, notepad or what you like)

How to disable the extension

To disable the extension, you must start Firefox in safe mode, then disable or uninstall it:

firefox -safe-mode
