Guys, i can figure out how to uninstall Firefox off my MacBook that is running I also want to get rid of some games such as Suduko ( my bro installed all this). I am used to Peppermint distro.

Assuming Firefox is installed the snap way (appears to be default in Ubuntu):

Check if it a snap package:
type firefox
if it says

firefox is /snap/bin/firefox

Then uninstall it:
sudo snap remove firefox

To complete remove folders associated with it:
sudo snap rm -r firefox

I did that but it said it is not installed. It still is though as I just went to the software and launched it!

What was the output from:
type firefox

Was it
Quotefirefox is /usr/bin/firefox

If that is the case then it is not a snap package.

You should be able to remove with apt:
sudo apt-get --purge autoremove firefox
