How do I fix this problem with firefox being associated to open a link?

Just bought a laptop running windows 8. When I opened google using firefox, I clicked 'sure' when asked if I wanted to install the google search app on the start screen, then on the page that followed, when I clicked 'view app in windows store', I was asked to associate a program to open the link to the store, I naively, it seems, associated firefox. However, this prompted a never-ending succession of tabs being constantly opened in firefox and I had to use taskmanager to shut it down. I can't find any way of unassociating or disassociating to correct this issue, Anybody have any suggestions please?

Thank you so much, that worked perfectly. (resetting Firefox) Fantastic, well done!
