Hello Joe.

If BearShare is an extension, you can go into Tools > Add-ons > Extensions to disable or uninstall it.

If it's a plugin, go into Tools > Add-ons > Plugins, where you can disable it. To uninstall it completely, you need to contact its author for support, as it's done outside the browser. In case it's a plugin.

I hope this helps.
