When I want to open a new tab I want to go to the same page as when I open Firefox. As of now when I open a new tab it goes to:http://search.searchlf.com/?uid=b724d289-c55f-4764-be28-e6e1f314c332&uc=20170205&ap=appfocus5&source=googledisplay&page=newtab&implementation_id=email_4.0.12 This just happened recently

hello, this sounds like a problem possibly caused by adware on your system.

  1. to stay secure you should also update to a current version of firefox as soon as possible, since firefox 47 that you appear to be using currently has a couple of known vulnerabilities: Update Firefox to the latest release
  2. afterwards go to the firefox menu ≡ > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc).
  3. run a full scan of your system with security tools like malwarebytes anti-malware , which are specialised in adware and browser hijackers.

Remove a toolbar that has taken over your Firefox search or home page
