Netflix keeps opening in new window while using Firefox

So, I have a problem with Netflix. When I'm working on my laptop, Firefox keeps opening Netflix in a new Window. It then also automatically directs me to that window, which is very inconvenient when you're in the middle of work. Sometimes it opens up to 6 netflix tabs...

In the add-ons I don't see any "unwanted" of "unknown" ones and I've also done a ADWCleaner scan + clean-up... It doesn't seem to help..

Does anybody else have this problem, or knows how to fix it? I really want it to stop..


Kr, Jody

Are you a member of Netflix? Have you contacted their support? What are they showing? Are these ads?

Do you have any Netflix add-ons?

Yess I'm a member of Netflix. Their support says it has to do with firefox and not with them.

The window that keeps popping up is the "log-in page" of Netflix. No further add's or malware seem to pop-up.

Also, i have no Netflix add-ons installed or anything similair to it.

Browsers don't just open pages. Something is calling it. Does the window open when Firefox is not running?
