Looking into profile directory, the QuickNote files are deleted, but references to it in chrome.rdf and overlayinfo\..\overlays.rdf are left untouched. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.

Had the same problem when I uninstalled the 0.9 compatbile Adblock
Severity: normal → major
Forgot to mention that was an installer build. Perhaps should be blocking0.9? The release should not have a bad extension-related bug as it had with 0.8...
Are you sure you tested it with a branch (Aviary) build? I see you requested 0.9 blocking which means that the bug appears on a branch build. However, using http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/2004-06-04-09-0.9/FirefoxSetup.exe, I noticed that the provided extension cannot be installed (it doesn't appear on the EM). So, wrt Firefox 0.9-1.0 branch, this bug is invalid.
Using the Firefox build from comment #3 and the 0.5.8 build of QuickNote causes the same issue: (QN 0.5.8: http://jedbrown.net/dev/Mozilla/quicknote_dev_0_5_X_ff0.9.xpi)
I downloaded this nightly: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/2004-06-03-12-0.9/FirefoxSetup.exe The extension appeared in the EM for me. It _has_ 0.9's install.rdf. I thought trunk builds were still using old EM, weren't they?
I can reproduce this with a dummy extension with an overlay. Ben, we need to delete chrome.rdf and the overlayinfo when we uninstall extensions.

On today's (June 5th) windows .zip Aviary build, the QN installs correctly, and on un-install screws up Firefox on first restart, then on the 2nd or 3rd restart, Firefox goes back to normal (working), although varies on which startup. I too believe it is a chrome.rdf and overlay issue.
Created attachment 150117 [details] [diff] [review] patch Make Extension Manager handle chrome registration arcs that don't include the provider name, e.g. <em:content>content/</em:content> by inspecting the contents.rdf at that location and gleaning provider names from it. Then ensure that the Chrome Registry also handles overlaid stylesheets provided by the extension and removes them correctly when the extension is uninstalled.
Fixed in the EM, which is branch only.

It no longer hangs on startup. Great! Though I noticed Firefox still leaves references to QN in chrome\chrome.rdf. While it isn't very bad, I think ideally they should be deleted too.
Created attachment 150263 [details] This one still breaks on uninstall Uninstalling this XPI causes the dead toolbars and the following message in the console: *** Failed to load overlay chrome://testext/content/testextOverlay.xul on: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040608 Firefox/0.8.0+ I'll reopen this bug, please let me know if you want me to file a different bug instead.
bah! ok thanks for the test case pike.
Bah. Your contents.rdf is malformed. your package URI is urn:mozilla:package:testext and yet your chrome:name arc is "showfailedurl" contents.rdf problem, not a EM problem.

I think I'll give up on testcases I'm not having much luck lately, sorry for wasting your time Ben.
