Date: 2014feb11 Product: Firefox 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.
