on startup, I can only get two windows not two tabs. redone process several times.
I always have two tabs set to open on startup. Just recently, the tabs switched to two separate windows, each with the two tabs. When I close one, both close. I don't know why this happened , though undoubtedly I did something and forgot. I am not especially technical. I cannot get FF to go back to the single instantiation with the two tabs. Any help would be gratefully received.
I just noticed. this happens whenever I open a tab, it becomes a new window as well as being added as a tab.

Try Firefox Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode that temporarily turns off hardware acceleration, resets some settings, and disables add-ons (extensions and themes).
If Firefox is open, you can restart in Firefox Safe Mode from the Help menu:
- Click the menu button , click Help and select Restart with Add-ons Disabled.
If Firefox is not running, you can start Firefox in Safe Mode as follows:
- On Windows: Hold the Shift key when you open the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
- On Mac: Hold the option key while starting Firefox.
- On Linux: Quit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox -safe-mode
(you may need to specify the Firefox installation path e.g. /usr/lib/firefox)
When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "Start in Safe Mode".
If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, theme, or hardware acceleration. Please follow the steps in the Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems article to find the cause.
To exit Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before opening Firefox for normal use again.
When you figure out what's causing your issues, please let us know. It might help others with the same problem.
I'm sad to say that trying Safe Mode made no difference. The duplicate tabs/pages persisted there. Going back to regular mode also didn't make a difference.
The only extensions/themes I have running are for LastPass and Light. Both of which I've used with no problems for years.
If I uninstall and reinstalll Firefox, might that help? Would I lose all my data (bookmarks, sync settings)?
