When I open a new tab (+) i get an unwanted site

When I click for a new tab I get a site "MyStart by Incredibar" I have unistalled the program but this site still shows up. I want to see my home page, or better yet the Bing thumbnails that used to appear. Where do I go to change the setting to get rid of the unwanted site?

Thanks

Re: When I open a new tab (+) i get an unwanted site

It sounds like you have a Third-Party Toolbar that has taken over your Search Engine, Home Page, and/or the Default New Tab Page. Fortunately this can be remedied easily:

  1. At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button (Tools menu in Windows XP), and then click Add-ons. The Add-ons Manager tab will open.
  2. In the Add-ons Manager tab, select the Extensions panel.
  3. Select the toolbar you wish to remove.
  4. Click the Remove button.
  5. Click Restart now if it pops up. Your tabs will be saved and restored after the restart.

After Firefox restarts, install the Search Reset Tool. This will remove the rest of the traces of this program from your Firefox.

For further information, please read Remove a toolbar that has taken over your Firefox search or home page.
