Why when I open Firefox do I get a Pop up window that says "you must login to this network before you can access the internet" It also has a button attached that says " Open Network Login Page". When you push this it says "success". The circled ? does not do anything and other popups appear on my desktop. This is very annoying so how do I get rid of it?

(please do not comment in bug reports

This is about network detection done by Firefox on startup. See Network Detection:

You can set <b>network.captive-portal-service.enabled = false</b> on the about:config page to disable this feature.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".
