If you can still open/install ES File Explorer it can be easily be found & uninstalled from Homepage / Apps .

OR If you can still ADB into the your FTV then just follow the "Update Process" instructions available in the FiredTV GitHub.

https://github.com/Redth/FiredTVLauncher#update-process

Quote:

Update Process

To update to a newer version of this app, first you must uninstall the old version.

You can do this on the FireTV itself (Settings > Applications > Manage Installed Applications > FireTV Launcher > Uninstall)

Or, you can use adb:

Code:
    adb connect xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx to connect to your FireTV where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of your FireTV
    adb uninstall com.altusapps.firedtvlauncher

Is this app no longer compatible with the FTV or FTVS? The Os updated on my FTVS and now it doesn't show up under installed apps.

Correct, it no longer works correctly, Amazon disabled the home button check or something, and made it under the list of apps that don't show up. Really freaking lame. If you don't have yours rooted, I'm sorry, nothing much you can do.
