When I start Firefox, 2 tabs open by default, my homepage and also the Options tab. How do I stop the Options tab from opening when I start Firefox? Have tried to select "Home Page:", however, by default, Firefox does not allow only the Home Page to open by itself, but will only allow "Use Current Pages" and adds "about:preferences" as a second homepage by default.

Since the last firefox update, every time I open the browser, Searching.com comes up. I've deselected all the search engines in the options menu from the toolbar, but that didn't help. I've even put in my preferred search engine, but that one doesn't even show up. I'm getting a little irritated that this search engine keeps popping up, and it includes a 'your computer may be compromised. please do this to fix it.' I have avast full version, so there should be no issues with malware. Help!

Hello, I'm one of proud users of Mozilla Firefox.

 My problem is when I start Mozilla Firefox, it loads to a page which is www.duba.com . This page is really unpleasant for me so I had gone through the settings in Firefox itself and also through Control panel on my PC. 
 
 Despite doing all of those things mentioned, this pesky website still appear upon startup and there is only one thing on my mind which is uninstalling Mozilla Firefox. Of course I will not uninstall it unless you can guide to remove this rather freaking website.
       Best  regards from me,
               ZED.

This just started yesterday. I have flash player plugin version 20.0.0.306 installed. When I set it to "Never Activate" in Tool\addons my homepage loads fine when I open Firefox. When i have it set to "Ask to activate" or "Always activate" my homepage will not load and i get a blank New Page. I reloaded firefox from scratch and reinstalled the flash player from the adobe update website. Kinda weird but I am wondering if this has been addressed or if anyone else it seeing this. i am running 64 bit version of FF on Windows 7 Pro. FF version is 44.0. Thank you !

When I open Mozilla, an advert pops up, instead of my home page. I have installed ad bloc, so no other adverts pop up, but when I open Mozilla, the random adverts that look like a virus (about winning i-phones etc) are always there. I have scanned my PC for viruses, and it says it has no viruses. I've also checked my control panel, and I have no programmes that seem unfamiliar or that I have there for a specific purpose. I have also refreshed my Firefox, and the problem is still there. I have checked add-ons as well, and there is only Ad Bloc.

I have updated to the latest version of firefox browser. Problem is that it shows the New Tab page with Top Sites instead of the default homepage which i much prefer. The default mozilla firefox homepage is set correctly in preferences but still i get the New Tab page with Top Sites when I open firefox or select the Home button. As an addtional item - can I get rid of the New Tab page with Top Sites option because I simply don't want it. I want the homepage on any new tab I open.

Thanks in advance for your help.

FF 58.0.2 64-bit Windows 7 64-bit

My home page is

http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/city/pages/on-118_metric_e.html

Frequently, when I open FF, I get the following error:

"Page Not Found (HTTP 404)

The page requested could not be found at this location.

If you navigated using a bookmark, we suggest you delete it or update the bookmark pointing to this site"

However, when I highlight the url in the address box, copy it, then paste it into a new tab, the page opens. The address is exactly the same in the new tab as in the one giving the error message.

I've scanned for malware, rootkits, viruses - all for nothing.

I've uninstalled and re-installed FF - no change.

Can anyone advise what else I can do, please?
