That doesn't look like standard Firefox, that looks like an Add-On. If it's an Add-On, it can be Disabled. (Hamburger menu, Add-Ons, Disable anything you don't recognize or with an icon that looks like that)

So far, it only appears on when I'm on the Wikipedia site. It's not something I've ever put there, showed up when I updated Firefox. Can't drag it away, can't right-click and Remove From Toolbar either. Customize Toolbar gives no love.

You can find the procedure for disabling it here: http://winaero.com/blog/how-to-disab...ew-in-firefox/

The same info is on the Mozilla support site, just not spelled out step by step quite so well.

I used to use Firefox, but it got cumbersome. So we went to google chrome and haven't looked back. I've got it on my macbook and Keryx has it on her PC and we have been pleased with it for years.

Thanks.

I already done clicked it. I just don't like it. I use that drop down list frequently, as well as the refresh thingy, and the Reader View button just makes things more difficult than they need to be.

That second not should not be a not. Should be a nice. But, it's not.

It'll read the page aloud to you, too.

Well, part of the page.

I'm not sure it works like they intended.

Still don't like it, and it hasn't appeared on any site but Wiki.

Also, if you open it, and close it with the little 'x' on the right pane that opens, the icon goes away from the address bar. Til you open the page again, or refresh.

Occasionally it appears on news articles.

I'll have to admit, it's kinda cool on pages that load a lot of ads, and/or never seem to stop 'loading'. Just click the thing and it loads only words, no ads. Like the man said, makes reading some pages easier.

I'd sure like to put it somewhere else though. Don't like it there.
