How Can I Get My Blank Firefox Address Bar Back?

more options

Why does my Firefox address bar have "http://search.anysearchmanager.com/?_pg=C22B9764-34B6-556E-8545-EBAFFD03F12D&affid=A1I70_set_bfr_H&type=h" in it when I open Firefox? It's annoying to have to delete all of that before I can enter the URL I want. How can I get the automatically blank address bar I had before? I use Firefox on a desktop Mac. (Firefox tells me there are thousands of results for this question, but I can't find any of them.) Thanks.

Seems like some kind of external program changed it. To restore it follow these steps:

1. go to about:preferences#home 2. Select Home page and New Tab as Empty / Blank
