Removing Free Download Manager from firefox

By Dale Ferrier
May 25, 2016
  1. There is no way to remove this free download manager from firefox that I can determine.

    I noticed that it was using like 20% of my CPU and I wasn't doing anything. It was (supposedly) just idling in memory.

    It is my understanding that this thing is a problem for a lot of people and I would like to scan my pc for malware and so forth and also get rid of this stupid extension, because apparently it uses a lot of resources and could also be a form of malware.

    Where should I start with this?
