They don't do this with Firefox. As shown above, the default is to also install the Google Toolbar. Again speaking defensively, it's best not to install software unless you absolutely need it. There is always the chance it will break something else, and, new software just becomes something else that needs care and feeding. The Google Toolbar in particular, has its own very recent security bug. See Trend Micro and Aviv Raff for more on this.
I suggest starting with the Adobe Flash player unintall program. Removing old versions of the Flash player using the standard Add or Remove Programs applet in the Windows XP Control Panel failed more often than it worked in my tests. Adobe has instructions on how to uninstall the Adobe Flash Player plug-in and ActiveX control that include a link to download its uninstall program. Not so much a pro but it is often required so I guess we just have to put up with it.
Often won't install. When it does install there are constant updates. Always seems to be suffering from security issues. I wish this buggy, insecure piece of junk would just go away so we could get on with better alternatives. Nightmare from then on. Even the checkmark "Let Adobe install for you" doesn't work. I can't believe, after 28 years using a mac, that one company, with one program, could bring my computer to it's knees. Have spent many hours looking for the answer. I need help here!

Mozilla has committed to finally replacing the Gecko page rendering engine with a new one called Quantum, but the company doesn't expect to make it available until the end of Sync requires managing another account: With Google Chrome, you can log in to your Google account which you already have if you use Gmail or subscribe to YouTube channels , and it will pull in your bookmarks, add-ons, and themes from any other device where you've used the Chrome browser with that Google account.
With Firefox, you need to create a separate Firefox account, which you won't use anywhere else. Thankfully, though, the login screen works just fine with password managers like LastPass Chrome desktop , Firefox desktop , iOS , Android.
Though it needs some initial setup to perform smoothly, Firefox is a robust and trustworthy browser. Mozilla Firefox is in the Web Browsers category of the Browsers section. No crashes. Efficient memory management. Releases memory quickly when closing tabs or when changing to work on another program like Excel. Automatically verifies important addresses in address bar with a green shield, verified by Symantec or DigiCert. Searches are verified by Google.
Instead of being the fastest Firefox as stated by their CEO, from my own bad experience on 64 based Win systems, all this 32 bit application does is freeze up, no matter how many times I exit and restart. I'm not really sure if the 32 v 64 thing does make a difference, all I do know is no matter what device, or where I was, FF would not run. At first, I thought it was just something on my end, until my father had the same unresponsive issues with the browser after he updated on his 7 sys.
The worst is when I drove all the way to the public access, they had to remove FF from the community terminals because everyone else had the same problem with FF freezing up and being unresponsive. This is considering they have high speed internet there with flash and java being up to date.
