In C# with Selenium you can use the below code:

FirefoxProfile profile = new FirefoxProfile();
profile.SetPreference("browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone", "ignore");
profile.SetPreference("startup.homepage_welcome_url.additional",  "about:blank");
Driver = new FirefoxDriver(profile);

Using this you will solve the problem
