Hi, can try this : uninstall Firefox. Then Delete the Mozilla Firefox Folders in C:\Program Files , C:\Program Files(x86) & C:\ProgramData Then restart system. Then run Windows Disk Cleanup. (Note: This should be Pinned and run Weekly, If never done below expect 10's of gig's) Then run it again and click the button that says Cleanup System Files. Note: your Firefox Profile is saved. But you should make a back up before you do :
Reinstall with Current Release Firefox 60.0.1 with a Full Version Installer
Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.
Your Kaspersky Protection did this happen since you installed it or since it's update as per date on the Add-on Page ?
Can try this before the above please : SAFE MODE
In Firefox Safe mode these changes are effective:
- all extensions are disabled (about:addons)
- default theme is used (no persona)
- userChrome.css and userContent.css are ignored (chrome folder)
- default toolbar layout is used (file: localstore-safe.rdf)
- hardware acceleration is disabled (Options > Advanced > General)
- plugins are not affected
- preferences are not affected
TEST''''is issue still there ?
Hi marinearty63, just in case it's something simple:
Firefox allows you to designate multiple tabs for your home page. Do you also get the Add-ons page in a new window (Ctrl+n) or when you click the home button (house icon)? In that case, definitely check the home page setting and see if it has something like this on the end:
This article has more info on the home page setting: How to set the home page.
Type about:config<enter> in the address bar. If a warning screen comes up, press the I Accept the Risk button. At the top of the screen is a search bar. Type browser.startup.homepage
What is the value? Right-click and select Reset to restore its default value; about:home
