extra tab created every time FF opened

A tab labeled "FireShot has been updated" opens every time FF is opened or a web page causes a new page to open. Have tried changing and deleting homepage entry in tools-options-main. nothing has effect. Is there an ini file anywhere that needs modification?

I am getting the same problem and it is very annoying indeed, I had only one homepage set (google) and I then changed to start with a blank page and the same thing happens, fireshot creates a second tab and takes me to the thanks for updating page:

http://screenshot-program.com/fireshot/updated.php?ver=0.36

Thank you for updating FireShot!

Regards, development Team


Even if you set FF to start on the last opened pages it still creates a new tab and says thanks for updating etc. Thinking of removing this plugin as it is an annoyance, other than that it is a great product but I will remove it if it cannot be fixed.

Every page should be displayed only one time for the current version. But...

The problem is in buggy settings' maintenance provided by Firefox. When it happens, it's impossible to store a flag indicating that this page has already been displayed and it should not be displayed anymore (until next update).

To fix this issue please make sure you read this: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Preferences+are+not+saved
