Java Console in Firefox 4.0
 
Does anyone have a method of removing the Java Console from Firefox 4.0 extensions?

I have read that if you run it as an administrator an uninstall option appears, this is for Firefox 3.xx I believe however and I have no such option next to my Java Console extensions.

There is only a Disable button, no greyed out uninstall button like the method I have read explains.

You can delete the dll file instead of renaming it, if you want.

I ll love to help you on this one, Java and myself are not friendly with
each other.:(
I think you ll get rid of that thing if you do a clean install of Firefox4 but
uninstall Java beforehand.

You can't remove it from within Firfox, you need to do that from within Java Control Panel (or something like that, sorry don't have it installed at the moment). You'll find it in Windows Control Panel. Open it and go to the Advanced tab, expand the Java Console entry and untick the related box.
If it's not the Advanced tab (sorry, directing you from memory), go through all the tabs until you find it and untick the related box.
Firefox needs to be closed while you do this.

Keep in mind, that it gets back with every Java update, so you'll have to do the routine every time.

If you need to remove other Java related stuff, take a look in this thread.

if you don't use java often or for anything else outside of web browsing, you might consider using portable firefox and portable java. It's what I do and seems to work fine. I managed to remove it by deleting a npj160_1.dll file (well name is from memory but it looks someting like that, the last number will be different depending on version)

you maybe able to find that file in your installed java folder to delete but I'm not sure if it'll mess with other applications using java since I only use java for webbrwosing
