I presume you mean the Google Gears Extension for Firefox?

Click on Tools->Add-ons and in the window that pops up click on Google and click uninstall. On earlier versions of Firefox it's Tools->Extensions .

Luck! :)

Goto System --> Administration --> Synaptic Package Manager
Enter your password
Then use the searchbar to find gadget
Select google-gadgets
Select Complete removal
Click on Apply
Once finished open nautilus on your home folder press 'Ctrl & H' to display the hidden folders & files
Look for a folder named .google and double click on it, then select and delete the gadgets folder
