Hi i have a problem, everytime i restart my computer firefox opens with this website ( check image or use the link below) i've tried removing all addons, refreshing Firefox, even restoring password so everything gets deleted, also while firefox is open with that website(only on start) everytime i click on any window, it just loses focus, like i was clicking outside the window.

Firefox doesn't normally open automatically at startup, but it might if it was left open when Windows 10 shut down. This article has more info on that possibility: Firefox starts automatically when I restart Windows.

In all other cases, the culprit might be another application or scheduled task launching a URL in your default browser. As a test, you could change your default browser to Edge and see whether the unwanted page still opens in Firefox or opens in Edge again.

I suggest the following Microsoft utility to check things that run at login and scheduled tasks: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/autoruns

Finally, Ctrl+w, the keyboard shortcut for Close Tab, might help with closing the unwanted page.
