Does anyone know how to remove the toolbar & some of the delicious buttons &
menus that automatically install onto firefox when you install the latest
delcious add-on?

I was quite content with the old add-on, which consisted only of the
checkerboard button to take you to your delicious page, & the tag button to
add a new bookmark. (even then there was this unnecessary delicious
drop-down menu added alongside the usual firefox menus - "file," "edit",
etc. - does anyone know how to remove that?) But when i upgraded to firefox
3.0, i was forced to upgrade to the latest delicious add-on, and that
includes a total of 9 (that's right NINE!) buttons occupying various places
in my browser, plus, in addition to the earlier unnecessary menu, an entire
new toolbar to take up more space from my already small screen.

I've tried right-clicking on all these buttons, menus, & the toolbar, & most
don't give you the option of removing them (most simply take me to my
delicious page - like i need 9 fricking button lurking all over my screen to
take me to my delicious page at the slightest accidental provocation).
Apparently the only option is to uninstall the whole add-on & quit using
delicious altogether. That would be extreme, but the annoyance of having all
these unnecessary things all over my browser, & the sense that my firefox is
being colonized by a commercial entity much like all the microsoft crap many
of us had been fleeing in the first place, is enough to make me consider
that option. I will hold off a little longer in case there is some way i can
remove some of these things & still continue to use delicious (which in
itself i still think is a brilliant idea & very useful).

Thanks for your help

It sounds like you want "classic mode", which only includes two basic
buttons (and a context menu button), like the old add-on. You can change
to this by going to Tools -> Delicious Options -> Advanced -> Switch to
Classic Mode. We're working on making Classic Mode an option during the
initial install process, to avoid annoying people who prefer these
simple buttons.

Also, thanks for pointing out that you tried right-clicking to remove
the extra buttons; we'll look into making that possible in a future
version. Right now you can go to Tools -> Delicious Options to remove
the status bar icons, and you can go to View -> Toolbars to remove the
Delicious toolbar. Or, just switch to Classic Mode.
