As above, when I click on a new tab it automatically comes up with yahoo search.

I don't want it to do this and cannot find how to change it.

It may have come about when I was downloading some software, I am not sure. I certainly didn't intentionally make it happen.

Firefox's behavior is to open a blank page when you open a new tab. Your issue is most likely caused by one of the add-ons you have. Please see here: Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems
