Have you tried starting Firefox in Safe Mode? Hold down "shift" while Firefox is starting up. If it doesn't happen in Safe Mode, you should read Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems.
If it's just the Yahoo! toolbar, you can remove it by going to Tools > Add-ons.
Finally, your issue may be because you've been hit with some Malware.
Hopefully this helps!
Matt, it's not an extension or a theme, nor is it the Yahoo toolbar (in fact I have no toolbars installed). I ran a malware check with Malwarebytes and IOBit Malware fighter and came up clean. I just want to get rid of this search-box at the end of my tab bar.
I opened it up in safe mode, went and reset all settings back to default. I also disabled ALL add ons. Then I went to add ons manager and enabled all the ones I was 100% certain I added. In there, you will find two add ons, one is the yahoo tool bar and default tab 1.2.2. I left those two disabled and started firefox. The tab was gone. I am not sure if it connected to yahoo.com but it is from a company called My Search Results and they claim to be a company that that this is the easiet way to search. Here is the addy for their about me page: http://corp.mysearchresults.com/about-us I kinda think it may also have some kind of spyware involved. This worked for me. I hope this fixes this nuisance.
