Every time I open a new tab it defaults to Yahoo search engine page. I hate this. I want a BLANK page as in earlier versions of firefox, or I want ability to customize tab (set website of my choice). How can I remove Yahoo from being the default page when I open a new TAB, and set my default tab website of choice.

Does yahoo own Firefox? If so I will install another browser all together.

I want to use Google as my search engine but no matter what settings I change the default search engine is always Yahoo.

Also I would like to have the feature back where when I open a new tab it shows frequently used pages that I can click on and open.

I have two main printers to use at home and whenever I print a web page, Firefox automatically prints using the non-default printer. If I select the default printer from the drop down list, it works fine. I shouldn't have to select the default printer every time I want to print.

I can log into gmail via Microsoft's Internet explorer so I know that my user name and password work. I have also added www.google.com to the list of allowable web sites in Firefox. The google account was started about two weeks ago and I had no trouble logging in until about 3 days ago. I have gone thru all the recovery steps suggested by google. I suspect that there is something between Firefox and google that needs fixing, but I do not know what.
