How to remove Pocket from Firefox

Post by digidog » Fri Jul 10, 2015 11:08 pm

When I opened my bookmarks menu this morning, there was a new item called "Pocket". Apparently it's a third party plugin which allows you so save pages for offline viewing later -- well doh... I didn't ask for this 'feature' nor do I want it. But getting rid of the little bugger has taken me over an hour. For that reason I'm including a link to the following helpful page which finally sorted the problem.

I understand that Mozilla have taken a barage of user complaints on board, and this item will (hopefully) be deactivated in the next Firefox release.

I've used ScrapBook ad on for ages. Don't need this extra.
Google, the answer to so many questions!
