Yahoo search engine seems to have imposed itself as default search engine whenever I open a new tab or use the small search pane on top right of screen. Is this a Firefox default setting and, if not, how can I switch it off?

Each time I click the "Open a New Tab" button, how do I make FF open to my homepage and why isn't this default behavior?

I have tried

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste newtab and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.newtab.url preference and change from the default (about:newtab) to about:blank.

When i double click on the browser.newtab.url it gives me the option to edit the url address. If i delete it or if i replace it with about:blank it just goes back to the url it has set.

Status: user set, Type: string, Value: http://search.conduit.com/?ctid=CT3314958&octid=EB_ORIGINAL_CTID&SearchSource=69&CUI=&SSPV=EB_SSPV&Lay=1&UM=2&UP=SP31A63AA1-176A-4724-A794-2FC07C141F7E

The last time i had this issue i solved it by deleting and reinstalling firefox. I don't want to do that every time this happens. Ideally I would like to be able to type into the address bar automatically when I open a new tab, without clicking there. That was my previous setting and it seemed to change without reason. It did not come back when i reinstalled firefox.

First, this delta search site kept opening every time I opened a new tab. So I got rid of that, but then every time I opened a new tab, the page was blank. I followed the about:config directions which would help me get the "pinned tabs" page back, but every time I closed FF and reopened, the same issue would reoccur. Now, every time I open a new tab, it goes to my homepage. I Just want to know how to get the pinned tabs back permanently.

Hello! I was wondering if it's possible to configure the Firefox in such a way that the new tabs open exactly the same URL that is typed in the Options. I tried to set browser.newtab.url to about:home but it gives me Firefox Google custom page instead of the startup page that I've set in the Options. Another way I tried is to set the browser.newtab.url value in about:config to the same URL as the startup page URL, but then if I change the URL in the options the new tab URL is not changed. So the question is whether it's possible to make the Firefox read the URL that is used for the startup page and go there when opening a new tab.

Hello,

  I've been having problems with FF when I right click a link on any site, and I want to "Open Link in New Window", but it never happens. Then I tried to right click the same link and I "Open Link in New Tab", which works. What happened? Did the programmers/developers change something? I even tried it in "Safe Mode" with the same problem. Can anyone suggest anything? I almost tried everything imaginable, even running Windows 7 Ult SP1 in Safe Mode as well, with no help. 

Thank You. David

This past weekend, my girlfriend decided to "help" me by closing most of my tabs and turning them into bookmarks, but I couldn't work with them in the order she put them in and wanted things back to way they were. I left the tabs as bookmarks, then went to my Library where I found a button that said "Restore" under the Import and Backup heading, and had it restore things to the way they were. Turns out it just got rid of the bookmarks, but didn't bring back my tabs. I really, really, need these back, and would rather not have to go crawling through my history for them. I have some of these tabs backed up from another pc on sync, but whenever I go to About: sync-tabs, it's completely blank. What do I do? Please help!
