It is also worth noting that this issue only occurs when Firefox is already running, and that clicking on the link when Firefox is closed will open the browser with the link in a new tab.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).

After, try opening a link. Is the problem still there?
