After installing the new Google toolbar for Firefox we noticed that when opening a new tab the page which was once blank, now displays your web history as tiled web pages for you and everyone to see. The thumb nailed sites will list up to nine, and also shows recently closed and bookmarked pages based on your browser history. For most people this may come in handy, either for instant access to your most visited site, or to spy on whoever used your computer last.

So for those of you who also think the toolbar is annoying, here are the correct steps on how to remove it.
2) Under the “Search” tab remove the check next to “Enable the Google new tab page.”
