The firefox is uninstalled now. Hope you have opted for keeping the data safe while uninstalling Firefox. Now you have to follow a few steps to clean the traces.

  1. Go to My Computer -> C:Program Files, look for a folder named 'Firefox'
  2. Delete the entire folder(If you use any other product of Mozilla, then delete the contents of Mozilla Firefox only.)
  3. If you have any registry cleaner software, use it to clean the dead entries from the registry post-uninstallation.

Hello,

Uninstalling Firefox without deleting browsing data and other information is very easy.

1. Go to Control Panel >> Programs and Features >> Uninstall a program.

2. From the list, find out Mozilla Firefox.

3. Select and right-click on it and then, select “Uninstall”.

4. Uninstall it normally. If any option comes forward saying whether you want to delete your browsing data or not, say “No”.

Done.

Now, install Firefox once again and you will still have the personal data on your PC.

If you want to remove Firefox completely with registries, use Wise Program Uninstaller. This is a program that has two options: “Safe Uninstallation” and “Force Uninstall”.

Just find out Firefox, select it and press “Safe Uninstallation”. After the program is uninstalled, it will scan your PC for leftover registries and files. Then, simply click “Remove”.

Firefox is completely hoed from your PC.
