This problem happens when I switch networks. I sometimes need to hop on my phone's hotspot to open a program, after which I switch back to my Verizon hotspot. When I switch from my phone hotspot back to the Jetpack hotspot, sometimes nothing happens, but other times, Firefox opens automatically without me clicking the icon, and it opens to though I have never been to and do not have it set as my homepage. So far, I have tried making my homepage a blank page in Options. When I open Firefox myself, I now have a blank page instead of the homepage, so I know it worked. I disabled the plugin from Cisco and that seemed to work for a while. Now it has started happening again; I do not understand why, and I do not want MSN as my homepage. I also do not want Firefox to open automatically without me doing anything. That's really creepy.

It could be the homepage of the proxy that the hotspot uses to authenticate you on the network. Ask them too if you do not see any malware that would give the impression.
