Firefox automatically opens MSN website when router connects

Hello,

I'm having a really weird problem with Firefox. When I turn on my laptop and am already connected to my router, it works perfectly fine - no opening on its own. However, if I turn on my computer and my network status says "action needed", which means I need to click my router to connect, then it opens Firefox and opens msn.com.

It only does this when I have to click/manually connect to my router. I Googled this and already changed one of the config settings in Firefox. I have no clue why this is still happening.

I figured it out, thank you.

I let my niece use my computer sometimes and installed a content filter a long time ago so she couldn't get into anything. Oddly, for whatever reason, this software opens msn.com in my default browser. Never knew it did this, no idea why.

All Seeing Eyes.......

What is the current setting of browser.startup.homepage

You can try to modify browser.startup.page directly on the about:config page

0 = blank, 1 = home (browser.startup.homepage), 2 = last visited page, 3 = resume previous browser session

tell me its helps then mark solution

thank you!

Does this only happen with Firefox as this might be a feature offered by your ISP to show some welcome page ?
