When I open a new tab, it goes to a search engine page other than my home page "Google"...annoying.
I made the mistake of downloading something called "Imesh." I have uninstalled it from my computer, but it still hijacks my browser into going to their search page when I open a new tab. When I start Firefox, it does go to my home page of choice. It is only when I open a new tab that it goes to "Imesh."

A new tab opens by default as a blank tab (about:blank). If that isn't the case then an extension has changed that behavior.
