How do I eliminate mysearch.com tab that was added by mistake?

I downloaded Open Freely and before I had realized it I said yes to adding yahoo toolbar. I have been able to eliminate the tool bar, but an extra tab has been added to Mozilla: mysearch.com. I want to eliminate that tab, but I can't. How can I?

hello jross, please go to firefox > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc). also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there.

afterwards you could also install the search reset addon - it will revert the most common customizations those adware programs do in firefox back to the default: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/
