How do you stop with open sites without permission?

Posted

When I'm using mozilla firefox open some sites without my permission. And when I'm not using the browser it opens sites alone too. I have passed anti-virus and removed all unneeded extensions him. How do I make it stop opening these sites alone? PS: I've tried blocking cockies and images, but to no avail. I hope you can help me please. thank you!

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.


Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.
