when I don't have any tabs open and I open a tab and close it again without going to a website the Firefox tab page shows up on the original web page I was on and won't change. I can hit the back button or the refresh button or type in a new website and the tab page stays on the screen. the only way to get rid of it is to close firefox

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Appearance
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window
