How to remove a site from Firefox

I've been trying hard to remove http://www.startgo123.com from my Firefox browser without any success. It doesn't let me update the browser to the latest version and nor are there any programs installed I see through Control Panel. It is annoying because whenever I click a 'New Tab' button, it redirects the home page to http://www.startgo123.com. I have set everything on Firefox to default, tried removing firefox profiles in the past but to no change. It initially goes to a different Home Page(Pic attached) and then to http://www.startgo123.com for a New Tab. Any help would be appreciated. I've googled for solutions that tell me this is a hijack website and my PC's security has been violated

Are you launching Firefox from the Desktop shortcut?? If so, right click on that, properties , then check the Target Field - If it has that address, delete it and save it.

Also you may need to run a anti virus/malware to make sure, they don't infect again.

I have tried antiviruses that have failed. Recently installed Zemana Anti malware which got rid of malicious stuff but didn't remove tmgog or startgo123. uBlock Origin a new AdBlocker for Firefox did ask me to ban the initial page tmgog permanently, will have to check if that is true though. Tx for your replies people! Much appreciated. Still looking

Go to Tools/Options
1. Under 'General' Restore homepage
2. Under 'Search' Select Google as your default search provider. Delete any unknown/suspicious entry.
3. Check for any suspicious entry under 'Extensions' and 'Plugins', if any remove/disable it

Restart your browser to check. If the problem still there then you need to hard reset your browser(before that backup your bookmarks).
