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

Funny thing happened. After posting this and trying a few things, I rebooted my computer and opened FF and looked in the Extensions/plugins and there was Proxy Tool. I removed it and now I have control of my new tabs.

So perhaps, it hides until you reboot. Not sure if this is it or not. Anyway, my problem with this is solved. Thank you all.
