How do I uninstall Flash & Video Downloader


Since I installed Flash & Video Downloader I occasionnally get pages on startup from fnvfox.appspot.com asking me to upgrade the downloader.
I would like to uninstall this pesky program but I can't seem to be able to find the plugin.
BTW, I am using Iceweasel on Debian:

~$ uname -a
Linux XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.60-1+deb7u1 x86_64 GNU/Linux

It shows up on the iceweasel toolbar, but not in the tools/addons/plugins.
Oops. It's in the extensions. Removed it.
I can't really see the diff between a plugin and an extension, but anyhoo ...
Thanks.
