I have done this - will it uninstall Ask.com
Great. Yes, if you saw Ask in the home page and you have removed/changed it to something else you want, then it is removed. Also, one last thing: in Firefox, click on Tools menu at the top, then click on Add-ons, then check Extensions/Plugins there, and if you see any Ask item there, then uninstall/remove/disable it. If needed, check the Home page again.Please let me know if there is still any issue. Thank you,
I think I am there now. Many thanks
