Remove Translate This! 2.0 annoying bar and its multiple malicious associates

Translate This! 2.0 is a toolbar typically attached to Mozilla Firefox. It can be added to other browsers too; however, in the wild such cases have not been reported or observed. Hence the issue is considered to be a Mozilla specific problem.
Removal of Translate This! 2.0 often goes along with extermination of the following infections: Trojan:Win32/Medfos.B. The trojan is instructed to load, and integrate into the vulnerable browser, the annoying toolbar.
The browser add-on may come bundled with notorious Happili intermittent redirects that occurs from time to time and blocks the results returned by Google.
Get rid of Translate This! 2.0 covering both the annoying extension as such and its surreptitious installer, as well as exterminate other infections as reported by the free scanner available here.
