FIRFOX TURNS ITSELF ON

Posted

FIREFOX opens itself when I close it, it pops up over top over other browsers open and often I have to click 2-4 times on things to get them to work. it is so bad I have uninstalled and reinstalled and now I am just to the point I cant use it and if I cant get it fixed I need to find an alternative browser. I am sending you this via chrome because I just cant deal with the firefox.

Is Firefox reopening right away, or just opening on its own? Firefox can't open itself. Something is calling it.

What page is the browser opening to? How are you closing the browser?

Menu > File > Exit.

You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

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