When I start Firefox on MAC a tab opens to "barisderin.com". This will not pass my security scan. Can I remove this "feature"from my browser startup?

As you probably will have guessed : you've got malware, that you will of course want to get rid of.
Would you do this please :
Go to the Firefox menu (≡) => Preferences => Add-ons => Extensions and remove anything that looks unfamiliar or suspicious.
Next step is to run malwarescans - further information can be found in this article :
Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. They all work differently - what one program doesn't pick up, the other might.

Baris Derin is the creator of quite a few extensions and he has the habit of going to his website each time one one of his extensions is updated.
So probably nothing to worry if you you use one of his extensions.
You can check the homepage setting and possibly check for issues with the extensions.
