Firefox opening a web page by itself


[link to this post]
 
I am using Firefox with OSX 10.8.2 - if I leave Firefox open long enough, it will open a new tab by itself and go to a site called PlanetSide 2

Any ideas what could be causing this?

Disable them all and see if it still happens. If not, enable them one at a time and check.

Or delete/move your FF profile and see if it still happens.
