    I suddenly found the "GoPhoto.it" installed in Firefox and could only disable but not uninstall it.

    Does somebody know how I can completely uninstall this extension and all its related files? Thanks.

    I found it and removed it.

    The files are in a folder with the name 2ea36bf1-0877-4aaa-882c-ff78f7d9d95c@dfb1672d-116a-4eb4-8be0-44786bd1d3dd.com which is in a folder with the name {ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384} in ~Library/Application Support/Mozilla/Extensions.

    I found this out by going in Firefox to Help/Troubleshooting Information. Here are all extensions listed - not just by their name but also by their file (or in this case: folder) name. I then searched for a folder with the string 44786bd1d3dd in it and deleted the whole thing.

    The people from Gophoto are bastards and should rot in hell. And many thanks to the people from Mozilla who put this Troubleshooting Information into Firefox and by this made it possible to find all extension files, even those that bastard developers try to hide.

    Nevermind it worked, thank you. I needed to restart my computer and once I did that it disappeared.
