Want rid of Babylon Search when opening new tab


Likes # 0

Hi, I'm needing more help, please!

Win 7 64-bit Firefox 14.0.1

Since yesterday, when I open a new tab, Firefox, it loads Babylon Search web page.

I am not aware of doing anything to allow this and have been into Tools Options and checked through and can't find where to determine what web page, or blank page, loads when opening a new blank tab, it to Google something.

Google.co.uk is my home page and I think I previously had set a new tab to open the Google page

Can anyone tell me how to get rid of Babylon and return to Google?

Many thanks

Hi Thanks for your links. Yes, a lot of potential reading there. I hadn't realised this was such a widespread issue and notibly so difficult to get rid of

I'd already checked Addons, in fact, but there is nothing there relating to Babylon. I've been into about:config but the specific line is already set to 'true'

Anyway, I have run out of time this evening, won't have any time tomorrow but hopefully will have some time over the weekend. It just happens I have several 'projects' on the go just now and I may just have to put this one on hold for a little while.

I will get back to update re any progress, assuming I make some but, more likely, will be back asking for further help ;)

Thanks very much, guys. Hopefully, I'll be able to suss this before too long.
