Kaspersky Labs creates security software such as Kaspersky Anti-Virus and Kaspersky Internet Security 2011. Default installation of this software will include add-ons for Internet applications, including Firefox, that provide added functionality to the browser. For example, Kaspersky offers an add-on that checks for suspicious URLs. If you do not use these extensions, you may find the icons that they create take up valuable screen space in Firefox. Disabling the extensions, directly from Firefox, will also remove Kaspersky's icons (the icons feature the Kaspersky logo or the letter "K" on a keyboard key) and free screen space.
