"Open a new tab" is not working in Firefox 3.6.13 on WindowXP NT
I am no longer able to open new tabs either from the toolbar, menue or + on tab bar. The only way I get a new tab is to right click a url-link and click "open new tab" Hre is my system Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20101203 AskTbARS/188.8.131.5290 Firefox/3.6.13 GTB7.1 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Foxit PDF Creator Toolbar was the source of my problem. Disabling it did the trick for me. Thank you Firefox and Contributors !Read this answer in context 0

I have been slowly removing relevant add-ons such as NewTabURL and nothing seems to fix this. It is a real PITA so a fix would be much appreciated. FF4 is not an option at this time as too many ad-ons are not yet updated.
Uninstall the ASK toolbar from addons and problem ll be solved.
Tools>> addons >> uninstall ASK /Foxit toolbar >> Problem solved
It worked! Thanks for the help ;-)
I also had this problem, uninstalling ASK toolbar for Foxit fixed the problem for me. Thanks.

Thanks Shavi, Removing the ask toolbar worked for my Firefox 3.6.17. hey should ban the ask toolbar. I didn't give permission for it to install, it just appeared without asking. Anyway thanks for the fix, man!
