Open new tab (before update, clear page) after update a web page search engine (unwanted) )

After clicking on the plus sign (new tab) this comes up:
I have never requested this nor I have ever heard of it.
I have tried to find where this page resides to no avail, can someone tell me please how do I eliminate this website and all I want is to have a clear page when I click on (Open a new tab)

install the [ Search Reset Tool]. and remove "Delta Search" from the control panel, also delete a possible user.js file
* [[Remove a toolbar that has taken over your Firefox search or home page]].
Did this fix the problem? Let us know!

  • When am opening new tab, iam getting some website instead of my home page ,how can I set my new tab page?

    Iwant to configure my new tab with google which is my home page,how can I do that,can any one give suggestion to me please?

    A new tab opens by default as a blank tab (about:blank).
    If that isn't the case then an extension has changed that behavior.
    You can middle-click or hold down Ctrl and left-click the Home button on the Navigation toolbar to open the Home page in a new tab.
    You can use an extension to set which page to open in a new tab:
    *NewTabURL :
    *My Homepage:

  • When I open a new tab by pressing the + sign, I am taken to another search engine other than Goodle. How can I prevent this so that I go to google?

    When I open a new tab, I'm taken to a page that is not google. I want to start with google and go from there.

    You can check the <b>browser.newtab.url</b> pref on the <b>about:config</b> page and set that pref to your preferred new tab page.
    * the default new tab page with the tiles is <b>about:newtab</b>
    * the default home page is <b>about:home</b>
    * for a blank page you can use <b>about:blank</b>
    The browser.newtabpage.enabled pref should be set to true to use the page set via browser.newtab.url as the new tab page.
    See this article about the New Tab page (about:newtab):
    Your System Details list shows that you have a user.js file in the profile folder to initialize prefs each time Firefox starts.
    The user.js file is only present if you or other software has created this file and normally it wouldn't be there.
    You can check its content with a plain text editor (right-click: "Open with"; do not double-click).
    The user.js file is read each time Firefox is started and initializes preferences to the value specified in this file, so preferences set via user.js can only be changed temporarily for the current session.
    You can delete the user.js file if you didn't create this file yourself.
    You can use this button to go to the currently used Firefox profile folder:

  • Cannot open new tabs in same window since FF update to version 15.0

    This morning, FF updated to version 15.0 when I opened it. Now, All links open in new windows instead of tabs like I have it set to do (yes, I've already checked).
    Also, I tried to go to about:config and NOTHING HAPPENS. The address bar is not working. I cannot even get the addon page to open so I can view my plugins/addons.
    Also, when I try to close one of the windows, the whole browser closes. HELP ME.
    This version is BROKEN.
    I need this fixed NOW. I have work to do and this is truly messing up my productivity.

    So no help will be given on this??? Guess I need to switch browsers, then. PERMANENTLY.

  • How can I stop Mozilla and some extensions from opening new tabs every time I open firefox, even with no updates?

    I'm using Firefox 9.0.1 on a Windows 7 laptop. Since upgrading to 9.0 and then 9.0.1 Mozilla and Speed Dial open new tabs as if they've been updated, even though there has been no update. Colorful tabs 8.0 did it as well, but I disabled it.

    Do you have BitDefender (2010 e.g.) with its toolbar? If yes, remove it because the BD toolbar is known to be buggy and cause this issue (add-on compatibility check at each Firefox start).
    And report here the BD toolbar version you have.

  • When opening new tab, how to make me able to type in the adress bar directly without clicking on it? -- (about:config reset and add-on doesn't work)

    Hi all,
    Need a help relating New Tab on Mozilla.
    I want to be able to directly type in the address bar everytime I open a new tab in Mozilla, without clicking anything. To be clearer, it means that everytime I open the new tab, the blinking cursor is already on the address bar.
    What's happening right now is everytime I open new tab, the cursor is not placed anywhere--not on the search bar on the page, not on the address bar. I should put the cursor somewhere to do something.
    I tried using the about:config reset (1) and installing custom new tab (2), but both do not work.
    When I tried the about:config reset the Reset button is not highlighted (I assume it means it's default already), and the Custom New Tab doesn't yield in different result.
    What confuse me is 2 days ago my Mozilla works just fine. Everytime I opened a new tab, the blinking cursor was on the address bar and I was able to type directly.
    Thank you and appreciate the help!!
    (1) about:config reset:
    - Type about:config into the address bar and press Enter.
    - To bypass the warning, press the big button labeled "I'll be careful, I promise!".
    - In the search box, paste browser.newtab.url
    - In the search results, right-click browser.newtab.url and choose Reset.
    (2) Custom Add On reset:
    - Install Custom New Tab. =
    - Open the Add-ons Manager (Ctrl+Shift+A; Mac: Command+Shift+A), then the Extensions category.
    - Next to Custom New Tab, click the Options button.
    - Set whatever page you want to open in each new tab (about:newtab is the default; about:home is the default home page), and make sure "Place focus in URL bar" is not checked.

    ''philipp [[#answer-669209|said]]''
    ok, as a follow up i'd recommend disabling half of the addons & restarting the browser - if the problem continues disable the other half & continue until you've narrowed it down to the culprit...
    Hi Philipp,
    I read the link you copied on the first post and also tried your recommendation above. None seem to work. Even if I disable all add-ons, the problem still persists.
    One other info, this problem seem to appear after I installed several program yesterday. These programs apparently installed other programs that set my homepage and main search engine to a particular website. But I installed all of these programs already. Would that be a cause of the problem?

    [BUG FIXED, see "EDIT 2" at the end of my post]
    I'm on Firefox 3.6.21, and I got this problem today after a Greasemonkey update (To version 0.9.10, apparently).
    Disabling Greasemonkey solved the problem, and re-enabling it reproduced the problem (middle-clicking links to open in new tab did not work, merely highlighted the link).
    I should also note that while Greasemonkey was enabled and the bug was affecting me, Ctrl+Click to open links in new tabs was also broken.
    I hope this helps!
    EDIT: It appears this is a known incompatibility/conflict bug between current versions of Greasemonkey and Tab Mix Plus. Read more here:
    EDIT 2: GREASEMONKEY HAS NOW BEEN UPDATED with a workaround to fix the problem. Go to to install the update manually. It hasn't been reviewed by Mozilla yet, so it won't be an automatic update for another day or two. All credit to "cannonfodder" below for noticing this; please mark his post as helpful!

  • My home page is set to google & is always open, after i open new tabs to other web pages & then go back to the original home page tab it is frozen or if not frozen you try to do a search & it displays nothing (blank page white background)

    If the above problem occurs I can open a new home(ie google) in a new tab & it works every time.
    When original home page isnt frozen & will let you do a google search but displays blank you cannot return to the original page (ie using back button or home button).
    When the page is frozen you can do nothing with it.

    # Click the orange Firefox button, then select Options to open the options window
    # Go to the General panel

  • Have recently updated firefox. Previously, opening a new tab, cursor would be in google's search field, as google was my home page; now when I open new tab, cursor appears in url bar; this is bugging me a lot. How do I fix this setting?

    cursor in URL bar when opening new tab; setting for this?

    That issue can be caused by an extension that isn't working properly.
    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
    *Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.

  • Open new tab with home page

    when i click on a new tab it want it to go to my home page not "new tab". Under tabs in options there is no option to set a new tab to open my home page.

    Open a new tab with the home page that you have set in Options > General:
    *CTRL+left-click the "Home" icon
    An Add-on that will open your selected page (set in the Add-ons options, see below) when clicking the New Tab ("+") icon:
    *'''''New TabURL''''':
    *after installing, set the options for '''''New TabURL''''': Add-ons > Extensions, click the Add-on name, click Options

  • I am clicking on the open new tab page but nothing happens I am on the latest version of Firefox

    as before the open new tab does not work i have checked the other answers to this question and none of them apply i have just updated to the latest version of firefox, every time i do this however I then get problems with Firefox not responding plus Identity Safe does not appear on the toolbar anywhere and I used this all the time to control websites and passwords

    The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information.
    Note: ''This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.''
    To Reset Firefox do the following:
    #Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
    #Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
    #Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
    #Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.
    Further information can be found in the [[Reset Firefox – easily fix most problems]] article.
    Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!
    If you would like to take a listing of the add-ons, important preferences/settings etc. to quickly replicate the previous profile, please open '''Troubleshooting Information''' via '''Help''' ('''Alt''' + '''H'''), '''Copy all to clipboard''' and paste it into MS Office Excel, or OpenOffice/LibreOffice Calc, or notepad. However, it would be a good idea to check for the existence of the issue immediately after the reset.
    After the reset, you can then [ update Norton products]. Please also see the workaround.

  • How to stop newtab-page flickering/refreshing when opening new tabs by ctrl-clicking thumbnails?

    Often when opening new tabs from thumbnails in newtab-page (about:newtab) the whole newtab-page refreshes itself or otherwise flickers. This sometimes causes that some new tabs are not opened when ctrl-clicking multiple thumbnails in a row. Does the newtab-page recalculate after every click what thumbnails it should show and this could cause the flickering effect? (Although I don't see changes in thumbnail order.)

    Hi FFanatic,
    Please update to version 32 to see if this is still happening. Go to About Firefox and click the update button.

  • When ever I customize the toolbar the open new tab sign that is the + sign near the lastly opened tab in the tab bar disappears and it remains so even after restarting Firefox.

    When ever I customize the toolbar, the open new tab sign that is the + sign near the lastly opened tab in the tab bar disappears and it remains so even after restarting Firefox. This happens only after updating to the new version 4.0.1 it never happened in the older versions 3.x.xx- checked it thrice. Thought it could be a bug and i didn't know where to report also don't have time and patience to search for the appropriate page so i'm reporting here for improving my favorite browser.

    You can find the New Tab button showing as a '+' on the Tab bar.<br />
    You can open the Customize window and drag the New Tab button from the Tab bar on another toolbar and it will become a regular toolbar button like the New Tab button that you have in Firefox 3 versions.<br />
    If you want the New Tab button at the far right end of the Tab bar then place a flexible to the left of it.<br />
