why do i have four tabs coming up when I open firefox


it takes a while for firefox to load because it is opening 3 tabs at a time for some reason. I only need one. One of the tabs is titled welcome to firefox. It shows Horray!!! your firefox is up to date. another tab shows version 6.7 installed of easy you tube video downloaded and wants me to select an edition. The last tab is the only one i want to open when I use firefox. it is the search page.So how do i stop the other two tabs from popping up and slowing firefox down?
