Go to the menu Tools -> Add-Ons. (In Firefox 1.5 or earlier, this entry was called Tools -> Extensions.)
Select the LibX entry in the list. Click "Uninstall" at the bottom left (it looks like an X).
If you simply wish to not display the toolbar, you can accomplish this by selecting the menu View -> Toolbars -> LibX. An even quicker way is to right-click on a navigation bar button, such as the refresh button, and to uncheck the box "LibX".
