i'd ps it to find the process, and kill it....

their manual only said click 'stop', soo... i then assume it only runs in the GUI, and can't be done much with offsite... never run it, can't say -- perhaps a 'man firestarter' or 'firestarter --help' can shed some light...

Ummm .... firestarter is most likely NOT running as a
service :) ... it's a graphical front-end to iptables, and
there IS no service running, it's kernel level.

To find out which rules are active do a
iptables -L

To flush them, do a
iptables -F
