When I click in newtab it goes to www.v9.com/br/newtab. Notice that it happens just when I click in newtab. I would like to control the way that the newtab works.

Thank you very much

In the address line enter the following and hit enter. about:addons In the resulting page, click on 'Plugins' to the left. I'm guessing there would be some v9 related plugin showing up there. Click on the 'Disable' button to disable that plugin. Restart Firefox and see if the issue is resolved.

Question owner

I'm sorry, there isn't a V9 plugin in the addons page.

Thank you.

Read and follow the 5 steps under "How do I turn the new tab page off?" in the following article to reset what opens when you click the New Tab button.

You can also try the following Add-on to reset your search engines. The Add-on runs once then removes itself from your Add-ons.
