I installed Flashblock 1.5 on my pc, and it works, but I can't find the program on my pc! It's doing it's job apparently- blocking flash vids unless I click the Flash play button- but I can't find the program on my pc, even when I do a search of my pc. Also, Firefox has crashed a lot recently, ever since I installed this phantom Flashblock; also, I can't view Cnn.com videos, even when I press the Flash play button.

At the very least, how the hell do I uninstall this troublesome flashblock program?

It's not in the Add-ons folder (Tools / Add-ons)?
That's where you manage, all of your extensions.

You should be able to uninstall it, from there.
After you uninstall it, you'll have to restart Firefox, to completely remove it.

All you can do is use the latest version (v1.5.4), for your version of Firefox
Here's a link to the homepage, where you can check on the latest bugs being reported, their disposition, any possible work-arounds, and file a bug report, if yours hasn't already been reported:
