Couldn't get new google tabs in Firefox

Specs: Windows 7
For some reason when I clicked on the " + " in Firefox for a new tab, not only would it no longer work, but when I opened a whole new page it went to something called searchqu. I had no idea what it was or how I got it. I read in this forum that it is associated with a software named Bandoo, and there were suggestions of downloading an add-on or going to Programs and removing the Windows Searchqu toolbar. I tried downloading two add-ons with no success. I went to Programs to look for the Windows toolbar. I didn't see anything called Windows searchqu but I DID see something called Windows iLivid which had Bandoo in the next name block. I uninstalled this, and now I can click on the " + " which once again opens a new page AND it goes to my homepage Google!! Thank you so much for the information!!!

Also go to Tools>Add Ons in Firefox to add or remove add ons.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
