After the list loads, click the "Installed on" column heading to group the infections, I mean, additions, by date.I know you've checked several of these things before, but if you wouldn't mind taking a second look: (1) Start with the Windows ''' Control Panel''', Uninstall a Program.I sure wish Windows 8.1 would give us access to the properties of these Taskbar and Start Menu shortcuts like Windows 7 and earlier. So it appears that when I launch Firefox from the Taskbar's icon, it was opening the bad Web site, but when I launch Firefox from the Start Menu, it was working the way it should.
10" keeps opening in a new tab every time I launch Firefox.
It also took over my homepage in Chrome and IE, but it was easy to fix those.
It just keeps bringing up this stupid Russian Web site. It does seem similar to the problem addressed in this article, but I'm using Windows 8.1, so it's not a simple shortcut that I can edit.

I've tried looking for it in about:config but don't see anything there. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/wrong-home-page-opens-when-i-start-firefox-how-fix? After the list loads, click the "Installed on" column heading to group the infections, I mean, additions, by date.

For some reason though, it keeps ignoring the homepage I changed it to in my Firefox settings. Thanks Cary So your home page is correct in the Options dialog, but clicking the Home icon or opening a new window (Ctrl n) loads the wrong page, or loads two tabs (one right, one wrong)?After all, English is not my native language too, and as you see I make mistakes too. Just enter in quotes: "I the sociable girl", or "I the cheerful girl", or "I the nice girl", or any combination of those and here you go. I bet most of it will be either from Kazan, or Cheboksary, or Yoshkar-Ola, or... But sometimes they are not so stupid, and copy the profile descriptions from somebody else's profile, written in a good English.But to start each and every profile with the same cliche, and with the same grammar mistake is really dumb! But overall, while dealing with Russian scam, I come to the conclusion that scammers are not very smart people. If that happens, half of Mari El starts using and re-using it, like this one for example: "The main thing about me is probably that I am a purposeful person and always reach my goal and that I am always ready top work hard for it.You would be wasting your time, and maybe even getting attached to that person, making plans, just to discover later that she is a scammer. Most of the Russian scam generates from the same source: Mari El.There is also a small scam source in Kazan, but it's really small.Don't ask me why they are putting this in their profiles!!! Or maybe they use some absolutely weird translator that translates the phrase like that?
