  1. Start Folx Uninstaller. It may be found in downloader.mac.dmg file:

  2. Close Folx application and all browsers if they are currently running.
  3. Check "Uninstall All Folx Components" box for full uninstallation. Folx application, settings, all browsers extensions and integrations, as well as Folx Netscape Plugin will be removed.

  4. Click "Uninstall" button. Once uninstallation is over, you will get a confirmation message:

Alternatively, you can delete only one component (or several ones) and leave other components and Folx application in your system. The following components, if checked, will be removed:

  • Folx Netscape Plugin – plugin that catches download links in all browsers will be removed.
