How do I get rid of "http://weeklyjobadvice.blogspot.com/ - Mozilla Firefox"
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. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org" 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.
I'm going to lock this thread as PeterWolfe2012 is discussing this in another thread - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/976987
