Firebug 2.0.19 won’t go away despite being disabled and even removed. 

Remove, restart computer and while it doesn’t appear in the extensions it still pops up every time I use Firefox.

Latest version of Windows Home (but the same problem with the previous version) Intel i7-5500U, 8Gb Ram.

How do I get rid of it?

Many Thanks in anticipation.

Are you sure that what you're seeing is Firebug and not the Firefox DevTools (with Firebug theme)? Can you post a screenshot?

Anyway, to make sure Firebug is removed:

  1. Go to your profile folder via the Firefox menu > ? > Troubleshooting Information > Open Folder
  2. In there switch to the extensions folder.
  3. In the extensions folder remove the file
