I'm getting a blank (white) screen when my Win 7 pc boots up to the desktop (see attached screen shot). It has a small FireFox logo at the upper left corner. After about a minute this window will close revealing the desktop. If you try to close it, it says it isn't responding. As a test, I uninstalled FF and then rebooted. This window didn't open up. I can't tell if it is a FF issue or if some program is trying to use FF on startup but failing. Has anyone else had this issue?

How do I stop Mozilla Firefox from starting up with Windows 10? [solved]

EDIT: I followed this site's instructions,

https://www.ghacks.net/2018/09/18/prevent-firefox-from-reopening-on-windows-10-start/

and it has not happened again since. It seem's that the newest update to Windows 10 makes it so it restarts any application that wasn't shut down for, if you restart or shutdown your PC. It must have thought I hadn't closed my browser each time, even though I am certain I did. 

It started doing it yesterday. Each time I start up my computer, it opens up Firefox to a new tab. It is not on the startup list in my task manager, and I just can't seem to make it stop.

If anyone have any advice on this, it would be greatly appreciated. I don't like it when my computer does stuff I haven't told it to do.

How to stop FF from running after I DO NOT close it properly before a Win10 Shutdown?

Using FF 62.0.2 with Win10 Pro 64bit.

More often than not I don't bother closing everything before I do a shutdown on my Win10 PC. This never used to be a problem for the majority of my apps, including FF - I'd get a clean startup next time round.

Recently though, I've noticed that if I don't close it beforehand, FF adamantly restarts on next startup and restores the previous session no matter what my Prefs are for restoring the previous sessions are (disabled obviously). I've even got the relevant browser.sessionstore prefs set to false or 0.

I don't see anything relating to FF in my Windows startup nor anything looking inside MSCONFIG.

When I DO a proper close exit before a shutdown, there is no problem - I get a clean startup without FF starting up.

Any ideas?

I always shut down my system without shutting down any programs. When I do this with Firefox open, it puts itself inside the registry key RunOnce, and will run on the next Windows start. Which for me is every single Windows start. How can I stop Firefox from doing this?

Note that "Restore previous session" and whatnot is already disabled in the settings.
