When starting my pc up and opening firefox for the first time, I always get a second window. which despite no menu or header behaves like a second instance of firefox. (not a tab). I have done searches, got add blockers on and removed all malware from my pc using kaspersky latest edition and databases.

HELP! I don't know where to go next.....

What is on this second window?


Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.

You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.

Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift (Mac Options) > key, and then starting Firefox. Is the problem still there?

Type about:config<Enter> in the address bar. If a warning screen comes up, press the Be Careful button. This is where Firefox finds information it needs to run. At the top of the screen is a search bar. Type weeklyjobadvice. Does anything show up? Right click on it and select Copy. Then post it here.

Type browser.newtab.url in the search bar. This tells Firefox what to show when a new tab is opened. If you want, right click and select Modify. You can change the setting to;

about:home (Firefox default home page), about:newtab (shows the sites most visited), about:blank (a blank page),

or you can enter any web page or about: page you want.

The same instructions are used for the new window setting, listed as browser.startup.homepage.
