Startsearch upon opening a new tab

Specs: Windows 2000

When I open a new tab, Startsearch comes up. I did the about:config and reset all that had to do with it, but it still won't go away. Is there a way for me to set a tab default so I can get rid of this nuisance? It doesn't affect the homepage when I open Firefox, just the new tab. Even just for that, it is very irritating and aggravating. I want to get rid of it!

I had the same problem and after doing a malware scan (which didn't turn anything up that specifically said startsearch but did clean up a few things), I started Firefox in safemode and it gave me the option to reset several settings and I selected all of them except my bookmarks. This seemed to do the trick, but I'll be keeping an eye out all the same and do a few more scans with various other tools.
