I use FireFox as my primary browser, have not noticed this in FireFox, but in Google Chrome the phenomenon that is described here is happening. I will watch this discussion in the hope the cause is something simple and not a malware. I ran a malwarebytes scan but it came back clean.
I had posted yesterday at 7:21 AM the post which I have attached below. An additional somewhat related annoying phenomenon has newly started in Firefox browser. Whenever I create a new tab, automatically a "Search" window with the web site URL http://search.babylon.com/?affID=110790&tt=120912_ccp_3812_7&babsrc=NT_ss&mntrId=a294b26e00000000000074de2b250925 has started appearing on my screen!
I positively don't want the above spurious web page just as I don't want, as described below, the "Google Search" window and the spurious multiple "Google Search" tabs at Startup of my computer.
My previous post:
Firefox Tabs and Home Page
I have Windows 7. Firefox is my default browser.
In Tools > Options> General > Startup, for "When Firefox starts", I have selected the option "Show my windows and tabs from last time". With regard to the next "Home page" item, three options are available: "Use current pages", "Use bookmark...", and "Restore to default". (Clicking on "Restore to default" supplies "Mozilla Firefox as start page".) Frustratingly, IRRESPECTIVE of which of those three options I use and then after clicking on "OK", I close that window, the following has somehow started happening recently:
Suppose that before I shut down my computer, there were Firefox tabs for certain three web pages. When I restart my computer, the tabs for those three web pages do properly appear on my screen, but BESIDES them, tabs for as many as FOUR "Google search" web pages have mysteriously started appearing, with one of those "Google search" windows then appearing as my home page! I do not want ANY of those four "Google search" tabs to be added on in my Tabs bar, nor do I want a "Google search" window to appear as my home page. When I check the "Home page" item in Tools > Options> General > Startup, the name of that darned "Google search" appears there!!!
The above phenomenon is both mysterious and very frustrating to me.
How do I get rid of all of those automatically introduced FOUR "Google search" tabs and the "Google search" home page too whenever I start my computer??
Thank you for the help!
