Why does Firefox open 3 Tabs all the time when I open it? One is my home page but the other 2 are about plug in being installed. How do I make that stop?


When I double click Firefox to open it, 3 Tabs automatically open. One is my home page but the other 2 are about plug ins being successfully installed. I want for only my home page to open. How do I make this stop?

But there aren't any symbols. It's just set to http://www.yahoo.com And every time I open Firefox, it opens with 3 Tabs, one of which IS Yahoo but the other 2 a regarding plug ins being successfully updated. I've even gone as far as to uninstall those plug ins and it still opens with 3. About ready to uninstall Firefox and stay with IE
