For some reason, when I hit CTRL + T in Firefox (6.0.2) to open a new tab, it opens this website,, even though I configured it to open when I open a new tab.

I don't know what is.

Does anyone know what that website is, and how to get Firefox to start off with Google instead?

Look at the add-ons you have installed within Firefox. It might be one of those that changes your start page. This might be helpful.

Thanks for the link. I didn't find the apps it mentionned, but removing one fishy-looking add-on and restarting Firefox solved the issue. – OverTheRainbow Sep 18 '11 at 16:27
