You don't need to do that.

Install the Personas Plus extension from After you install and restart Firefox, go to addons (tools > addons), click preferences for the Personas Plus addon, and uncheck "show preview when selecting from menu".

It is a piece of Javascript running that is annoying you so the easiest way to disable it is to install the NoScript add-on. Once installed you can easily set it up to block the page in question from running the javascript that is annoying you.
