Question not changeable start page in firefox !?

since some time last month, i have everytime i open firefox.
- i have never been to this web site before
- i do not care about studying in arizona. it surely is a nice place, but i had enough of studying, thanks a lot.
- in my preference settings, there is another home site that has nothing to do with the arizona university (for example

i really have no idea where this is coming from, but it's starting to really ennoy me. can it be an extension (tab mix plus)?
how can i get rid of it?

thanks a lot in advance

Need more info.

Are you using one of those Desklett thingys? (gdesklets etc...)

I used to get the same thing using gdesklets. I had to edit the link so that it said "firefox" and not "firefox -u"
