How do I stop Firefox automatically opening and forcing me onto a second tab with a Google sign-in every time I open Firefox?

Every time I open Firefox to search for something - it automatically opens a second tab and forces me to that tab. On the second tab is the Google account login. I now avoid using Firefox if I can because I cannot shut this off.

Does this also happen in Safe Mode? You can restart in Firefox Safe Mode from the Help menu:

  • Click the menu button New Fx Menu , click Help Help-29 and select Restart with Add-ons Disabled.

To exit Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before opening Firefox for normal use again.

Also, on the General tab in Firefox preferences, what are "When Firefox starts" and "Home Page" set to?

You can check the home page setting:

  • Firefox > Preferences > General > Startup: Home page

Firefox supports multiple home pages separated by '|' (pipe) symbols.

Thanks chaps. You led me to this page where the Refresh Firefox option worked.
