    now when I right click in Fire Fox 3 (anywhere) I see the option to steal the website content.

    I was recently sent a link to http://the-coolest-stuff.info/ and had never seen the option before.

    Please is there a way to fix this (it doesn't seem to do anything).

    Can you please post the exact wording of the contextual menu item or, preferably, a screenshot?

    added a screen shot and reinstalling seems to have no effect.

    would love to avoid resorting to app cleaner. (complete uninstall tool)


    Found a plugin called Menu Editor but it seems to just hide the option not remove it.

    Disabling the addon seems to have worked.

    must have been packed in the update for compat with 3.0.

    No, it's not a standard add-on... I think some site you visited must have installed it, and you either didn't notice it was happening or forgot....

    unless you download some private compile firefox with pre-installed addons. you should have been promoted to install any addon.

    If you are sure the addon installed itself (which I haven't heard any case so far), please do report back. It would be a significant case.
