Q.  I seem to have a virus.  How can I stop Firefox from
showing http://homepage-web.com/?s=acer&m=tab 
when I open a new tab?

A.  The setting for this isn't available in the regular options.
You need to type "about:config" in the address bar.
Search for "tab" and you'll see the nefarious setting.
Right-click to reset it.

You can also search through the registry.

I would *not* recommend installing a special purpose cleaner app.
They'll probably give you more viruses.
