How can a selected Personas be set back/disabled in Firefox 3.6?

I have downloaded and installed Firefox 3.6 and selected a Personas (lightweight themes/toolbar skins). However the content of the download status bar at the buttom is no longer readable. How can the Personas be removed/disabled such that the original state after the installation is restored?

The original state can be restored this way:

menu Tools/Add-ons/Themes/click "Default 3.6"/press button "Use Theme"/Alt + F4

A restart of Firefox is not required.
