I turn my laptop off completely at night. Start it up in the morning and sometimes Facebook, which was the last site I was at, would open up on it's own. Like I never closed out. Can anyone tell me why this happens? There must be a setting for this. Also, after I close out and attempt to go to another site, I get this pop up on my screen that says," Firefox is already running but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window. So I hit the "close out" then I can get to the other site.

I have Windows 10 and use Firefox

Have you updated firefox, are you closing it prior to shutting down?

Download this / save it/ run it.

Yes, Firefox is up to date. Is that cleaner like the CCleaner that I have which I did run.

On the "Sign In Options"
Require sign-in
If you've been away, when should Windows require you to sign in again?

I have it on "Never"

That program is a malware finder, so good that Malwarebytes bought the company and have it as a separate scanner.

I have to sign in only when logging into windows.

Okay, I down loaded it and it cleaned up some things. I thought it would set a icon on my desktop for when I want to do another scan but it did not.

It got rid of 27 of these:
PUP.Optional.Legacy
Adware.pokki
