How can I remove DuckDuckGo completely from Firefox? It is not listed in addons.

I have tried a number of ways and it is still there. Can you tell me how to get rid of DuckDuckGo completely from Firefox 22.0? Thank you. It is not a listed add-on to be easily removed. Duck logo is next to home icon in browser, and intrudes on google search, etc. Thanks for your help.

I had the same problem. Could not find a DuckDuckGo extension in my list of extensions. Opened the Profiles folder and checked every sub-folder. In one I found two files labeled DuckDuckGo. Move both to the trash and restarted Firefox. The DuckDuckGo search box was gone - replaced by a Google search box. That's what I wanted.
