A Firefox Tab is stopping all other activity, cannot close it
I've tried a number of anti-adware and anti-virus products including adware, malware-bytes (and their tools).
I cannot find a way to get rid of the tab. It locks Firefox and appears in 'Safe' Mode
It is not the home tab.

Hi, what's its URL?
Note that Firefox is able to open multiple home pages with the URLs separated by a 'pipe' (|), so please see - How to set the home page, and in 'Home Page,' make sure that in addition to your home page URL, there isn't anything else - if there is, just delete it. (the Firefox start page is about:home but you may have set a different one, or the New Tab page is about:newtab).
You can also try any of these that you haven't already -
- Microsoft Safety Scanner
- MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
- Anti-Rootkit Utility - TDSSKiller
- AdwCleaner (for more info, see this alternate AdwCleaner download page)
- Hitman Pro
- ESET Online Scanner
Note that not all removal programs will detect all malware, so you may need to run several or all of them.
Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.
