My computer currently uses the kernel modules firewire_ohci and firewire_core. I don't want them.

I blacklisted them, but they still load after any reboot. How can I deactivate them?

Did you rebuild:

sudo update-initramfs -k all -u && sudo reboot 

If that doesn't work you should be able to disable them in GRUB.
