Updated to Win10, FF opens tab to a unsaved/unwanted legitimate website almost everytime I run it.

Since I updated to Windows 10, when I start FireFox about two-thirds of the time it will open with all my previously opened tabs but then open a new one to the Logitech website (http://www.logitech.com/en-gb). I do have two Logitech products on my PC and the only thing that has changed was the upgrade to Win10.

I have gone through the settings for FF and cannot find a reason why it should. There are no mysterious extensions or plugins.

I have gone through all the settings for Win10, particularly the Privacy ones and turned off everything that I do not want.

I was running an older version of FF but I have updated to the latest version but that has not fixed it.

I am working on a web site with css. A certain page (http://chemistrygame.org/storybeg_hauntin.html) shows an ugly overflow scroll bar on Firefox, which did not go away when I enlarged the text box and changed the overflow setting from "auto" to "hidden." Both chrome and IE do show what I want to see (no scroll bar). Why not Firefox?

When I click the star icon, it bounces to the clipboard icon, the dialog box "Page Bookmarked"comes up and I press done. If I input that url again, the star icon is a solid colour and if I click the star icon again, I get the "Edit Bookmark" dialog box. Firefox thus seems to be recording my bookmarks. However, inputting a bookmarked url does not cause autocomplete and requesting a listing of bookmarks shows an empty list, so I don't seem able to call up bookmarks.

I have sensory processing issues, including a nasty sensitivity to flashing lights, zooming animations, parallax animations, and so on. Flashing lights can be blinding, disorienting, migraine-inducing, and in some cases, with safety lights, seizure-inducing. Flashing cursors don't take up much of the screen, but if I'm looking at the screen near the cursor, they're still a problem.

I had set uicaretblinktime to 0 in about:config, to stop the blinking cursor.

I reset it to the default, to try to see if Firefox would follow the system settings, which should also stop the blinking cursor. It wouldn't.

I can't find uicaretblinktime in about:config any more, to set it to 0 again, to stop the blinking cursor again.

How do I add uicaretblinktime again? Or add another fix to stop the blinking?

Is it necessary to have sync. I won't be using it on any other instrument and I don't know how I would use it. I have chosen a new password, but am told I had one before so hope there is no conflict.

If I click on the "open email as web page " link all images look fine. This has been happening for a few days and I am not sure if it is the new firefox version or something with hotmail.
