    Why do you have to remove it? Just don't access it. Use Bing or something else. Some day you may want to do a comparison.

    Shouldn't about:blank fix it?

    If you click the icon at far right of toolbar (it is icon of 3 horizontal bars), then click "Customize", then grab the Google search bar you do not like and move it off the toolbar. Then click exit customize. I think that work for what you want. (Also agree you can do Preferences-General-Startup-When Firefox starts- choose Show a blank page.)

    I already use the address bar above to Google. The extra search bar just takes up space and looks annoying to me.

    Well I like to have my speed dials in a new page instead of a blank one.

    Well Bo, I want my speed dials in a new page and no other annoyances. The extra Google Search bar was introduced in the last FF version 30. Before that the new page was clean with only speed dials.

    @Tipsy
    Customize only shows: 56768.png

    No way to drag the extra Google Search bar here as it doesn't even appear in Customize.
