The uninstall function is grayed out and inoperative. Why?
This Add-On should be optional on download, I want it gone, how do I do this?
Thanks.

I went back to update 7 after finding Quick Starter activating (checking) itself after disabling it!

Looks like the domain for the second link has changed; try this instead:

http://khairie.net/remove-java-quick-starter-from-firefox

Cool - thanks, worked for me

This page shows how to stop the Java icon appearing in the system tray after you visit a site that uses Java, and also disable the Java Quick Starter service:

http://www.java.com/en/download/help/quickstarter.xml
Uncheck both boxes.

I followed the procedure at this page to stop Firefox from loading the Java Quick Starter extension:

This involves deleting the JQS Value from the [b]HKLM\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Firefox\extensions[/b] Registry key.

Actually I use FF2 not 3, but I found these procedures effective.

A simple question I would have thought, this is the Java forum isn't it?
I notice many questions go unanswered which can only lead to the conclusion that no one that actually works for Java/Sun ever visits here. Great PR guys.
Once again , how does one uninstall the Quick Starter Firefox Add-On?

Thank neigor, I'm already watching that but the OP's fix doesn't work for me and others elsewhere. I also went back to update 7 after finding Quick Starter activating (checking) itself after disabling it!!!
I just want to install 10 without the bloody thing putting an Add-On in Firefox.
