While using FireFox this NickPJason.github.io page launches without my having asked for it. Is Mozilla pushing this page? Or is it malware?

Chosen solution

No, Mozilla nor the Firefox browser from mozilla.org is doing this.

From a couple recent threads it looks like it is due to the HTML5 Loop extension which is not made by Mozilla. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/html5-loop/

Thanks for the reply. Sorry for the great delay! This was the answer to my problem. I disabled the HTML5 Loop extension and voila!

Note that you are a few versions behind on Firefox updates. Current ESR version in 31.6.0
