'Mozilla Firefox Start Page' tab coming up automatically when I open Firefox

Posted

My OS is Windows 7 and I'm using Firefox version 6.0.2 I've set my homepage to Yahoo! Canada. Every time I open Firefox, the 'Yahoo! Canada' tab opens. But the 'Mozilla Firefox Start Page' tab also shows up--right beside the Yahoo! Canada tab. How can I stop the 'Mozilla Firefox Start Page' tab from opening automatically when I open the Firefox browser?
