    Making MSN go away.


    So. At the moment, I have no working phone jacks in my house and am therefore throwing money at my neighbour while I wait for a tech to actually show up. This means that while my desktop is online, my HTPC is not: it lives in its own little world connected to my router and a NAS. This HTPC has a shiny new install of windows 10, and thus far the only things I've reinstalled is firefox, Kodi and a skin (for Kodi). Firefox was set to default, and as normal the default homepage was changed to "blank". For luck, I also reset IE (or whatever its called now) to have a blank homepage as well. But for some reason beyond my comprehension, every single time I connect to a network (whether it be mine or my neighbour's abyssal wi-fi) Firefox will magically open and try to show me MSN. It was doing it to me on my mostly-offline laptop as well when adding the MAC addresses to my router - a router I might add that hasn't had an active internet connection in months. Why in the blue frig does Windows seem to think I give a rat about MSN, and how do I make this go away? Considering how often my desktop drops its connection to my neighbour's wifi, the number of extra tabs it would open is terrifying and is making me wait to upgrade lol.

    :)

    Rplacement Passive Step Tracker for MSN Health?

    it's not MSN health, it's MSN Health and Fitness.

    you just need to launch the app, it'll notify you that it's going away soon. other MSN apps will no longer exist either (food, travel, maybe others).

    you CAN use the Microsoft Health app as a replacement (if it is available in your Region), but it is much worse for the same effect than the MSN Health & Fitness.

    Making MSN go away.

    That's FF doing it, not Windows. You can set any start page/s or even blank page if you want to. My is set to Google for instance.
