On signing in to Firefox, a website appears to tell me it has scanned my computer and wants me to allow it to clean the 829 problems it claims it scanned.

How do I clean this website from my computer when it appears upon signing into Firefox?

It sounds like some malicious website has been set as your Firefox home page. If you change your Firefox home page, it sounds like that will likely fix the issue.

If not, try running in Firefox Safe Mode. If the page doesn't appear when running in this mode, it's likely that an extension installed on your Firefox browser is producing this page.

Hope this helps.
