Updated to Win10, FF opens tab to a unsaved/unwanted legitimate website almost everytime I run it.

Posted

Since I updated to Windows 10, when I start FireFox about two-thirds of the time it will open with all my previously opened tabs but then open a new one to the Logitech website (http://www.logitech.com/en-gb). I do have two Logitech products on my PC and the only thing that has changed was the upgrade to Win10.

I have gone through the settings for FF and cannot find a reason why it should. There are no mysterious extensions or plugins.

I have gone through all the settings for Win10, particularly the Privacy ones and turned off everything that I do not want.

I was running an older version of FF but I have updated to the latest version but that has not fixed it.

I have figured out why, the G-key I assigned Firefox to on my Logitech Keyboard would open the default web browser to the Logitech page. I reassgined it from the generic "web browser" option to the Firefox.exe.
