How do I get new tab to open to google search? It used to!

Posted

New tabs had started opening to Yahoo. Stopped using Mozillauntil Chrome started annoying me. Got rid of Yahoo search page by disabling freezenet but now when I click on the + sign to open a new tab, I get a blank page. I used to click on the + sign and open to the google search page. I want it back. Please help
