Crazy Like a Make it Stop!

Help! For a few days now, keeps loading a tab in Firefox automatically every so often. How do I get it to stop? I tried clearing cookies and stuff, and scanned for malware and found nothing. I also tried reinstalling Firefox since I wanted to upgrade to the latest beta of Firefox 3 anyway. I'm behind a corporate firewall here, so this kinda thing never happens typically. Any ideas?

Have you tried turning off JavaScript?

any chance you have it bookmarked? probably not but I had a weird thing happen with that once.

Maybe you can try the noscript extension to block scripts unless you specifically allow them.

Response by poster: Ok. Great...turns out I got pranked.

My coworker added a scheduled task to open the site every 10 minutes as a lesson for forgetting to lock my workstation. :)

Thanks, anyway.
