To disable to add on on Firefox
Click on Firefox to bring up the menu
Click Add On
Click on Extension and Disable the Add On you no longer want to use
You can always try to delete Add On from the Add/Remove Program in Windows

I installed Meebo to see how it works and how to disable or uninstall the add on. So I was able to install and get the toolbar at the bottom of my Firefox and then afterwords I uninstalled the toolbar through Add ons >> Extensions and then click remove. Then I needed to restart Firefox.

In addition to everyone else's excellent & expert suggestions...
...if all else fails, you could just create a new Fx profile and then move your prefs and bookmarks or anything else you want (except the extensions) to the new profile.
(It's not a bad idea to create a new, fresh profile from time to time in Fx and TB, anyway...)
If that Meebo thing isn't a global extension, it should not affect your new profile.
(BTW from some threads at MZ forum, it seems it was likely installed as a bundle with some sort of toolbar you might have installed...)
Here are some links to the helpful KB articles at MZ forum, if you need them:

Entertainment Weekly and TVGuide are two amongst others.
Meebo can load the tool bar even on a fresh installation of Firefox.
