    Hi -

    I was looking through the files of Firefox and see a chrome folder. Don't know what this is about, I haven't downloaded chrome. Also see in searchplugins entries such as amazon, answer, google, etc and, again, don't know how they got there.

    Are these needed?

    Thank you.

    There should be a chrome folder and it has got nothing to do with the chrome browser.
    The searchplugins folder and the files it contains are also part of the normal Firefox installation.

    It's nothing to do with the Chrome browser. Firefox uses the term Chrome to mean ... well here is a link that explains it

    This link may well tell you more than you wanted to know!

    More briefly put, if you want to put your own personal customisations into either the Firefox interface or the way that Firefox shows sites to you, the files in the chrome folder are where you place them.

    Thanks for posting the question because as I searched thru my Mozilla profile I too saw the chrome folder and put off looking up what it was. So thank you.

    And I thank you. It's comforting to know others ponder the same things.
