Well can you not disable it?
If not how about using another copy of nvda which does not have it to just remove it from the folder completely then reboot the nvda that had it. Most add ons can seemingly be removed this way.
I'll await somebody to shout at me....

Subject: [nvda] Need help with BrailleExtender


My first attempt to hide dots 7-8 worked, but the side effects are unacceptable. The down arrow on the keyboard hides
oor shows the dots, but now I can't use menus, including the NVDA menus, unless I happen to remember the letter for an
option. How do i get out of this!? BrailleExtender seems to have its own configuration file.. Restarting NVDA doesn't
fix the problem. Neither does reloading BrailleExtender.
