General Crawler in Mozilla Firefox! How to delete it!?

Hey Guys,
Today when I opened Mozilla Firefox (as usual) I found a strange add on called General Crawler! I was trying to delete it, but NO UNINSTALL BUTTON! I Googled how to uninstall manually... done it... but I can't find it! I found in some forum to add/remove it in Control Panel, but there is nothing!
Please help me, sorry if I am in a wrong forum, but I think it is a program so you can help me!

Thanks!

This advice is pretty good.

That thing is somewhere in these folders (copy-paste folder name as is in Explorer address bar):
%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Extensions
%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\

Search for gencrawler@some.com folder as well.

Also, you can try to create a new profile to see if it will appear there.

Thanks Neutron16 for this help!
My problem has been solved by deleting {ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384} folder which located in %appdata%/roaming/mozilla/extensions
This works on both General Crawler 2 and 2.5, and General Downloader!
Thanks Neutron16 again
