Make use of the Following Steps.
- Firefox Menu - Tools > Options > TAB
Make sure the following are checked
- open new windows in a new tab instead
- when i open a link in a new tab switch to it immediately
Does it work if you middle-click the link?
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
- Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.
i have these selected but it still doesn't work
Did you tried in safemode?
