Some extensions open a page when they are updated, so if an extension update regularly then you may see their page more often. You can check the extension's settings to see whether you can suppress these pages.

Umnikazi wombuzo

Thank you McCoy you're really fast (the first!) but -

unfortunately we've already tried everything that is mentioned or explained on the first 10 google search page results in particular - • adjusting the home page prefs • adjusting about:config prefs in older versions of FF before v66.0.3 (back to 2003) • stack exchange results (We really believe in any stack...portal!) • waisting time with esoteric rituals and prays....

Install one of the mentioned add-ons and then explain how you! stop it opening a tab at the next FF startup (osx 10.13.6) in detail - references to other pages with experiences others made are not wanted. If you have no personal experience in that topic - please...don't.

And I nevertheless thank you!

You mention plugins like Adobe Reader and VLC that are no longer supported, so what Firefox version are you using?

Would you try this please :

Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter (promise to be careful, if asked)

Type in the search bar and look for the preference :

extensions.getAddons.cache.enabled

and set its value to false

Then close and restart Firefox.

If this doesn't make a difference, change the value back to 'true'.

After erasing FF, profile and all related stuff I've installed FF from the ground and now it works. Whatever caused that strange behaviour is history.

However thanks for the support!
