Galaxy s9 Samsung' Internet hijacked by Google

I am having an issue where every time I open a new tab in Samsung Internet on my Galaxy S9, Google's search page comes up by default.

 

On my S8, whatever I had my homepage set to would come up instead.

 

For whatever reason, Google is appearing instead of my homepage. I even have Bing as my default search engine.

 

Can someone tell me how to fix this?

It's difficult to help you if you don't tell us what you've done to set the homepage, I can tell you how to do set the homepage but I don't know if that's not working for you.

 

Open the page you want as your homepage, tap the 3 dots in the right hand corcern of Samsung Internet browser, then setting and hit current page, I'm guessing you know how to do that? From there you should be able to select a search engine. by hitting default search engine.

I already set my homepage and search engine to bing.com. It was one of the first things I did when I got the phone.

 

But when I open a new tab, this is the link that comes up:

 

https://www.google.com/webhp?client=ms-android-tmus-us-revc&source=android-home&gws_rd=ssl

 

I didn't set it to that (I don't use Google's search engine) and can't seem to figure out how to get rid of it.

 

I've tried re-installing the browser, but I get the same thing.

1) Go into SETTINGS.

2) Select APPs.

3) Scrool down till you see Samsung Internet.

4) Select Samsung internet.

5) Scrool down to app settings and look for "Set as default"

6) Select set as default.

7) just below that, make sure it now reads SAMSUNG INTERNET under browser app.

 

You should now be all set with Samsung internet as your default browser app.

Setting the browser as a default is not the issue.

 

The problem I'm having is in the app itself.

What he is saying is when opening Samsung internet his homepage is already what he set it to be, the issue is when clicking new tab Samsung would automatically set new tab as Google search even though especially for me I hate Google and set it to Bing, new tab is linked to Google Web page and there is no way to changing it
