How do I remove Nation Advanced Search from automatically being my main page on a new tab?

Posted

Every time I open a new tab the default goes to Nation Advanced Search where I want it to go to google.com. That is my homepage and set up as that, however not on any new tabs.

You can use the SearchReset extension to reset some preferences to the default values.

Note that the SearchReset extension only runs once and then uninstalls automatically, so it won't show on the "Firefox > Add-ons" page (about:addons).

If you do not keep changes after a restart or otherwise have problems with preferences, see:

Hello there, before you start fixing your browser, you need to uninstall Nation Zoom from your computer. One important thing - you need to uninstall not only Nation Zoom browser protection. You should also get rid of these programs that are typically used to distribute Nation Zoom on the Internet: Wsys Control, Extended Protection, eSave Security Control, Desk 365. After that, you should find Nation Zoom's extention and remove it.
