How to stop multiple websites opening all at once
Every time I open a link to a website other websites open at the same time. Sometimes it is just a blank page, but I can get 2-3 websites that open when I try to open just one that I want. These are not pop up ads (I am using an AdBlocker)
Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:67.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/67.0
If this doesn't happen on every website, they are probably popups. Regardless of whether or not you have an ad blocker installed on FIrefox, you may still get popups on certain websites.
Are they any specific websites? For example, are they websites that you've visited in the past or is there some specific reason that those websites would be opening?
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 causing the problem.
- switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
- do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window
