How do I get rid of "http://weeklyjobadvice.blogspot.com/ - Mozilla Firefox"

Posted

This question has been asked before and marked solved - BUT I don't have any of the malicious add-ons said to be responsible; never have had and still have the problem. Any ideas?

Thanks

When does this page open: when starting Firefox, at a certain time each day, when updating Firefox, new tab, new window, randomly?

Please post a list of your extensions. You can extract that as follows:

Help > Troubleshooting Information > "Copy text to clipboard" button

When pasting, you can remove the lower part of the information starting from Important Modified Settings.

Thanks. I opened the question here because https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/976987?esab=a&s=weeklyjobadvice.blogspot.com&r=0&as=s was marked solved and I figured that it wouldn't get much notice.

However, the replies on that thread did give me something to look for. I found "Test Your memory! 1.2 true memory@lipo-technologies.com" in my FF profile and removed it.

To the extent that one data point is proof; it seems to have solved the problem. I posted the new info on that thread and would delete this one entirely but that doesn't seem possible. So . . . I've included my apparent solution and links to the other thread to tie them together in case someone finds one and not the other.
