My new tab goes directly to this Bing/Express Files search engine and I can't figure out how to make it go to default homepage or the original new tab settings
My default homepage is set to google, as is my toolbar search engine, but I cannot figure out how to change my tab homepage. I would like it to either go to my default homepage or show the original new tabs option where there is thumbnails of my most visited sites. I will take either of these as this stupid bing or express files search engine thing that pops up whenever I open a new tab is starting to get on my last nerve. I have tried using the add-on for tab homepage but that also seems to be unsuccessful.
