How to remove social media bar?
Please help,I never use the social media bar. I don't understand twitter, never use facebook, don't have g+, pinterest or instagram account. How do I make it GO AWAY! It doesn't have the small arrow to close, and it's not even transparent, just annoying.
A step by step for dummies would be greatly appreciated.

In order to uninstall a possibly unwanted extension, please do the following:
- Click the menu button and choose Add-ons.
- Once the Add-on Manager has opened in a new tab, click the Extensions button on the left side of the window.
- You should now see a list of your installed extensions on the right side together with buttons on the right side of each extension.
- To remove an extension from Firefox, simply click the Remove button. You should see a message that informs you about the successful removal of the add-on.
- Note that some add-ons require a Firefox restart to be removed completely. To perform a Firefox restart after the add-on removal, click the Restart now link in the message.

,I never use the social media bar
Many web pages have this displayed. It is not ad / mal-ware, it's the site.
Thank you both! It was actually the site! The other answer was actually really well explained, but it wasn't my case.
The site is annoying because I cannot read properly, but it is actually just ONE site. So thanks for the help and answers, but it isn't actually fixable.
There may be a way to do this, but you have to know what you are doing. What is the web address, and what is it you don't want displayed?
