What is the "user_pref" that controls "When Firefox Starts"? I need to manually change it from "Show Windows and Tabs from Last Time" to "Show Home Page". I clicked on what "should have been" a legit link/button, but it came up announcing some virus / malware, etc... A log-in box pops up and when I cancel that, I can't get the tab closed quick enough before it pops back up again......I need for it to just open with my normal list of tabs. Thanks!

(scans by Malwarebytes and Panda didn't show anything)

Thanks! I obviously can't open Firefox to use " About:Config ", but it, of course, was easy to find the User_Pref for that ...... Thanks again!

OK, back in business.......it didn't actually just come up with my "home pages"......but with the message, "Oops, can't restore previous session.....etc..." So via that, I was able to uncheck the tab with the issue and all is good now. :)
