Okay do one thing. Try the Find more search providers... link install any other (like google of bing) and see if it allows you to remove babylon after that. I can see the option for removing babylon is disabled.

The first image is of your home page.

Click on Firefox Options Options and check what your home page is set to. Mine is set to www.sevenforums.com

Also scroll down on addons and see if babylon is there.

Okay, did you try the same thing you did with IE 9?
Search and install another search program (better install google) and see if it allows you to remove babylon after you've made google search and bar your default.
