Hi!

If it's in Firefox : Right-clic on the Firefox toolbar, and choose "Personnalize". Then, you can drag and drop elements to moove, place or remove it. ( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customize-firefox-controls-buttons-and-toolbars )

If it's out of Firefox : This may be an unwanted program. Download and use AdWCleaner ( https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewdownload/1-adwcleaner/ ) or better adware-cleaner like Malwarebytes for example.

Tip : A lot of bad websites practice installation file repacking, to add an adware suggestion. Do not download Firefox (or another program) from these bad sites. Download your software from the official Website, or use Unchecky ( https://unchecky.com/ ).
