How to stop Firefox from opening on computer startup?

Posted

I've checked the "Startup" on my laptop and Mozilla nor Firefox are listed, yet Firefox still opens whenever the computer starts up. I even close down Firefox before shutting down the laptop. Help please :)

Hello terryflorida4,

Would you please type in the address bar :

about:config and press Enter (ignore the warning)

Type in the search bar toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart

and set its value to false.
