Everytime Firefox starts, my home tab opens as well as Ghostery tab, how to turn off second tab?
I have tried several fixes but when I start Firefox, or close and reopen, I get the second Ghostery Hub tab.

Hi steveburnett67, Are you using the Ghostery Start Tab? You'll probably need to disable or remove that extension. Was it Ghostery – Privacy Ad Blocker that you meant to add?
Yes, it is the Ghostery-Privacy Ad Blocker. I have been using it for some time without problem, the automatic tab thing started 2-3 weeks ago or so.
According to Ghostery - "Ghostery Start Tab is NOT included with the Ghostery privacy extension – you must download it separately." Maybe you can follow up with them at https://www.ghostery.com/support/
You can check that those pages aren't set as multiple homepages.
You can check the homepage setting.
- Options/Preferences -> Home: Home
Firefox supports multiple homepages separated by '|' (pipe) symbols.
I contacted Ghostery help about this issue after updating an old computer that I have to Windows 10. As I explained to them, it only happens on the old computer which I updated, not on my regular computer or my laptop. It seems Ghostery is aware of this problem. They suggested that I refresh Firefox on the computer which I did, but it still happens. They also suggested that I create a new Firefox profile on it, which I'm not going to do!
