How to remove Firefox add-on completely

I have a Firefox add-on that I've been trying to uninstall but it's still visible. I went through the process and restarted Firefox to no avail. I still see it with this message: This add-on will be uninstalled after Firefox is restarted. How can I completely remove it?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Have you scanned for any traces of the add-on like a folder that may not have been removed? You may want to try running a registry cleaner app to see if that clears things up. Sometimes it’s a security thing where if the add-on was install by a different user than the one trying to remove it may cause an issue.

    Probably one/more leftover file(s) might reside there, after remove add-ons.First take all necessary backups of Firefox bookmarks/settings etc. Did you try to remove only one add-on or all add-ons. If you did want to remove one, please link here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/disable-or-remove-add-ons 

    If you wanted to remove all add-ons, you can uninstall/reinstall the Firefox to overcome this issue. Keep in mind before doing that, please take backups as stated above.
