How Do I get rid of "Fast Browser Search" Toolbar?


My OS is XP SP3 Browser Firefox 3.5

This was added when I installed an application on my Facebook page. I have run Add and Remove Programs and found nothing. Using Firefox I have Tools>Addons>Extensions and Uninstalled this extension. The toolbar is still there. Zone Alarm Anti-virus/Anti-spywear hasn't found anything. I ran Hijackthis and couldn't find anything to rid me of this toolbar. All I can do is click View > Toolbars and select to display or not display. How do I get rid of it?

TIA

Sorry, I had Googled "Fast Browser Search" and a majority of the links said it was malware.
