Why can't I start typing a URL when I open a new tab?

Posted

Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

I used to be able to starting typing a web address whenever I opened a new tab. But ever since I did a Firefox update, now I get this address whenever I open a new tab: chrome://vuze_remote/content/aboutTabs.htm. So then I have to select that address and delete it before I can start typing a link in the window. How do I get the address window to be blank again when I open a new tab?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

I did a Firefox update

Your extensions list shows the Vuze Remote Toolbar extension so it is likely that that extension is responsible for that behavior.
