    Stupid Divx
    Ok, first it kept giving me update pop-up everytime I opened a YouTube video because I downgraded to an older version of Divx. Since the pop-up kept appearing even after I upgraded back to the newest version, I decided to delete Divx.

    Now another nuisance; after deleting Divx from Applications and HD -> Library -> QuickTime. Still, whenever I open a YouTube video I get a yellow bar on the top saying I should install "missing plug-ins" for Firefox so that I can watch videos in "HQ" with Divx's plugin. NO way.

    How do I completely get rid of everything Divx has put on my mac so that I can stop getting this yellow bar in Firefox everytime I open a video on YouTube? (Before I installed Divx I never got that)

    This is really annoying.

    Download AppTrap or similar, re-install, and then drag to the Trash whilst AppTrap is active, turn on in System Preferences. Keep us posted?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    You mean I should reinstall Divx then move it to the trash when Apptrap is active?

    Yes. Make sure AppTrap is active by going into System preferences >AppTrap and heck active. By default it becomes inactive on shut down.
