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

Check if it a snap package:
Code: [Select]
type firefox
if it says

firefox is /snap/bin/firefox

Then uninstall it:
Code: [Select]
sudo snap remove firefox

To complete remove folders associated with it:
Code: [Select]
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:
Code: [Select]
type firefox

Was it
Quote
firefox is /usr/bin/firefox

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

You should be able to remove with apt:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get --purge autoremove firefox
