New tab in firefox goes to google.

Every time I open a new tab in firefox it sends me to google. Now I know what you are all thinking. You all think i need to do a virus scan. Before you suggest that i didn't have this problem until I instaled AVAST! antivirus. The ANITIVIRUS DID THIS TO ME. All these programs think they are doing me a favor by screwing with the settings on my browsers. They are not. I want my Firefox put right back were it was.

I already set my homepage to about:blank now i need to set my tabs to about:blank.
My firefox versoin is 27.0.

Thank you

Is there a reset button somewhere? Maybee I just need to completely reinstall firefox. When worst comes to worst that usually works.

Is anyone else having this problem? When I use the Google search bar (not google.com) Firefox is informing me that it blocked a "logging popup" I googled (ironically....), and apparently it's a common issue across a few browsers atm,... but I guess I'm a little paranoid.
