The site isn't a FF site so why do you blame FF for something that isn't FF related? Sounds more like malware infection that you either installed from somewhere or went to a site and got malware infection. FF doesn't change nor redirect your homepage-plus FF has a default home page and it isn't the one you listed.

Hi,

That 'hloginnow.net' is a bowser hijacker, malware that you will of course want to get rid of.

Go to the 3-bar menu (or 'Tools') => Addons => Extensions and look for any unfamiliar or suspicious looking extensions.

When you find any : remove them.

Do the same in your system's Control Panel.

However : most malware will be 'hiding' somewhere , so let's run malware scans :

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. They all work differently - what one program doesn't pick up, the other might.
