Try to reset some preferences to the default with the SearchReset extension:

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

If you do not keep changes after a restart then see:

If you want a blank tab, enter about:config into the address bar, hit the return key on the keyboard, and change this setting:

browser.newtab.url - change to about:blank

Hi,

To remove 22find.com do the following:

  1. Enter “about:config” in url bar in order to open settings page;
  2. Write “Keyword.url” in the search box. Right click it & reset it.
  3. Write “browser.search.defaultengine” in the search box. Right click it & reset it.
  4. Write “browser.search.selectedengine” in the search box. Right click it & reset it.
  5. Search for ‘browser.newtab.url’. Right-click and reset.

Very often more than one browser is affected by hijackers like 22find.com, if you need to remove it from other browsers, follow these 22find.com removal instructions.
