I click the remove button, but nothing happens...

Is there any way to remove an extension? I have 3 to get rid of.

You should remove an extension using the same way that you used to install it, i.e.:

  • If you downloaded it from the web, then the remove button should work.
  • If you installed it from the Software Centre, then it's installed system-wide (for all users) and you should remove it using the Software Centre.

This answer was not helpful. Even when downloaded from the web, the 'Remove' button does not remove the extension. –  user52353 Mar 27 '12 at 23:49
Did you find a solution? –  Guy Korland Nov 4 '12 at 15:38
