My homepage is google, and my browser is mozilla. But everytime I open a new tab the browser changes to yandex.ru. I can't seem to find where to eliminate it.

Chosen solution

You have possibly inadvertently installed some software of malware that is causing this. If it is not visibly listed in your Firefox add-ons you may need to change your preferences and find and remove the software. The problem software may be listed as a program in your Vista OS listing and it may be easy to uninstall or it may be more problematic.
