Why do my tabs open up as the Amazon website instead of the Firefox start page?

Hi all, As of this morning my Firefox tabs have all started opening up as Amazon's front page rather than the usual "most viewed sites" page that normally comes up. I have checked the extensions and add-ons areas on Firefox and found nothing, I have changed the homepage settings through my internet options and through firefox and not had any luck. I have also run Spybot, AVG and removed any unrecognised programs from my control panel add/remove list still with no luck. I did have an issue a long time ago with the "incredibar" toolbar but that had been removed a few months ago and everything had been fine since. Upon advice from reading another question I removed the user.js file and cleared the cache etc, upon restarting Firefox sadly it is still doing the same. Any ideas?

hello, try to install the search reset addon - it will also revert the new tab page in firefox back to the default: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/
