Do you mean on the bottom of Firefox, or below that, on the Windows Taskbar or desktop?

If it's in Firefox, I'd love to see a screenshot of that. This article has tips on capturing screenshots: How do I create a screenshot of my problem? Please blur or delete any personal/sensitive information before uploading. You can use the Browse button below the text box for a reply to attach the saved screenshot.

If it's on the Windows Taskbar or desktop, does a right-click reveal any useful information? If you open Properties > Shortcut it usually will indicate the program's folder.

That was added by Google for April fool's, so it should go away in a few days. It's actually quite interesting though. In the meantime, you can install [stylish https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../?src=ss], and add the following rule:

   .widget-mini-pacmap {
       display: none !important;
   }

Install the addon at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/stylish/?src=ss and then restart the browser. Then, type about:addons in the address bar, and click on "user styles" in the sidebar. Choose "write new style", and in the window that appears, paste the below text:

@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);

@-moz-document domain("www.google.com") {

  .widget-mini-pacmap {
      display: none !important;
  }


}

Enter a name in the text field near the top, and then click the save button.
