How do I get rid of the Welcome to Tabbed Browsing page. It defaults to the search engine window when I want it to default to the address bar. HELP!

There is no URL, the page opens with a blank address screen but the cursor defaults to the search window in the "Welcome to tabbed browsing"

I would like the answer to this as well - in firefox. It just started when I installed FireFox 3. Before that it was just giving me a blank page with no search window (which I liked). Now it gives me a single search window in the page which gives me different outcomes than simply google (which has been my normal search engine)

I noticed this "FBSMTWB" at the end of the your user agent. Have you done a malware scan recently?

According to this link it was installed via a Facebook load. Even though that link refs. IE browser I'll assume that it could affect (if loaded via FF) Firefox.
