Why is Firefox automatically opened to the website every morning?

Lately, every morning when I open my laptop ( I only use blank screen) Firefox is already open to the website. This is on a Windows 10 laptop. I cannot find anywhere in Firefox settings that is telling this site to start up nor any reason for Firefox to even be open. I definitely shut Firefox down when I'm finished browsing. There are some 'Recent Highlights" and one of them is showing that page, but I am unable to remove them.

Firefox does not have an option to start itself. Something is calling the program. == Kelley Blue Book

Is this once a day, each time you open the browser, start the computer . . . . .

You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article;

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
