My browser keeps opening random links even when it is closed. How do I get it to stop? Is it a virus?
Hey, for a while now my firefox has been having a this problem, that I have not been able to fix. No matter when it is closed or opened, it opens random links that are usually very long and never load. I installed a plugin to at least somewhat block them but they keep poping up. It doesn't seem to be connected to any keys on my keyboard, since it opens at random times without me doing anything. I have no idea what the problem is and I have tried many things to fix this:
-Reinstalling firefox -Deleting all the cookies -Using the problem-fix-opinion in my settings to clear any keybinds that could be causing this
yet nothing seems to help.

Is it the same issue as that described in the thread linked below?
Maybe try to set another browser as the default browser to see if that has effect.
You can do a malware scan just to be sure.
