The following just started a week or so ago. When I start Windows 11 (latest version), Firefox (build 116.0 64 bit) automatically starts and the page that displays is attempting to access one of my Microsoft accounts. I tried toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart. but nothing changed. There is nothing in my Startup folder related to Firefox, and msconfig doesn't list anything as a startup process.

What's strange is that this just started happening. I've used Firefox as long as I can remember, and have never had this issue.

Short of uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it, does anyone have any suggestion(s)? Thanks.

Thanks ... good suggestion. I switched it to Edge and it does the same thing.  :-)

Back to the drawing board. I'll do some research on any browser opening with Windows opening.

Thanks.

Try changing the default browser in Windows to something other than Firefox and see if the browser you see on startup also changes.

I solved the 'mystery.'

I have an email program starting on Windows start up, and then minimizing to the taskbar. I deleted one of those accounts last week but didn't think about removing it from the email program.

Now I realize the program was opening and trying to find that email before it could minimize to the taskbar. Because the email was deleted, the email program couldn't find it ... and left the window open instead of minimizing it.

Sorry ... I'll blame it on old age. Thanks for the help.  :-)
