An unwanted tab keeps opening by itself on my browser whether my browser is open or closed. A website called the goodcaster.com.I tried using addons to block the website,but a tab still opens,except this time,an empty page appears,with the website address appearing on the search engine but the page blank. And at the bottom right corner of my browser on that page it says that the website is blocked. It happens every few minutes and multiple tabs with the same website keeps opening.

You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.

Having more than one version of a program may cause issues. You must remove the older programs. Then get the current full installer.
