When I open a new tab by pressing on the + sign, I am taken to another other than Goodle search engine. How can I avoid this so that I go on google?

When I open a new tab, I get redirected to a page that is not google. I want to start with google and go from there.

You can check the browser.newtab.url pref on the topic: config page and set this pref to your preferred the new tab page.

  • the new default tab with the tiles page is on: newtab
  • the default homepage is Subject: Home
  • to a blank page, you can use Subject: vacuum

The pref browser.newtabpage.enabled must be set to true to use the page defined through browser.newtab.url like the new tab page.

See this article on the page tab (topic: newtab):

Your list of details of the system shows that you have a user.js file in the profile folder to initialize prefs each time you start Firefox.
The user.js file is present than if you or another software has created this file and normally it wouldn't be here.

You can check its contents with a text editor (right click: 'Open with'; do not double-click).
The user.js file is read whenever Firefox is started and initializes the preferences to the specified value in this file, so the preferences set via user.js can be changed temporarily for the current session.

You can remove the user.js file if you do not create this file yourself.

You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder currently in use:
