Tip & How-To about Mozilla Firefox

Remove Microsoft NET.Framework Assistant 1.0 plugin from Firefox Add-ons

This is installed automatically by Microsoft and is incompatible with later version of Mozilla Firefox and will be greyed out so you can't remove it.

There are two ways to remove this first install the NET Framework patch HERE and the greyed out uninstall should now be black so you can remove it normally if this doesn't work you need to remove it manually from the registry

Enter REGEDIT remove this key

Type in about:config in the address bar in Firefox, accept the warning here be dragons
