When I open a new tab in Firefox, it always used to be a 'blank page'. I always had my home page to Google, and new tabs were blank. Now when I open a new tab, it opens up with Yahoo search (but my home page is still Google) Basically, how do I stop Firefox from opening new tabs into websites.

When I click on a link within a website to open a document (word, excel etc.), Firefox doesn't open it. Even when I tell it to open in a new window, it just opens a blank tab labeled "untitled."

When I try to click on a link to a document within a website, that document doesn't open like it should. For instance, if I go to the census website and click on a link to open an excel spreadsheet, Firefox doesn't do it. It usually does nothing; if I tell it to open in a new window or tab, it just opens a tab labeled "untitled" that ends up being a blank page.

I've seen many similar questions, but the answer never worked for me. Here's what I tried: - stop running as administrator. Nope, neither the shortcut nor the exe were set to run that way. - disable Java Quickstart. Nope, not listed in the extensions or plugings - edit something in registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Mozilla\something@something. No, I don't have any Mozilla registry keys. I do have MozillaPlugins, but no match; only @yahoo.com/BrowserPlus. I search the registry and found HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Wow6432Node\Mozilla. [Why has nobody mentioned this alternative path? Very confusing.] Not too much there, but there is a MozillaPlugins with @adobe flashplayer, and @tools.google.com/Google Updater.

What can I do?

I am running latest version of FF (v 363 ). When I try to log in to a CC site (https), I enter my password & userid. FF then kind of hangs for 3-4 seconds and then I get the WSOD. Only a hard reboot can get me back up and running. I am running XP Home Edition Version 2002 SP3. I am almost positive that this is a FF problem because if I access this same website using IE 8. I thought it was a problem with my laptop (Presario 2000) monitor but I hooked it up to external monitor and the external monitor just goes blank/black when my laptop monitor turns white. Please HELP!
