Can't close tabs in Firefox.

I open a new tab (link from email or a other page usually). I read the bloody thing. I click the number of open tabs to display all open. I close the tab with the x. It goes away (closes). It gives me the option to undo. I wait until that goes away. I wait few more seconds and swipe down on the "open tabs" frame. It closes and the number says 7. It agrees with what I see open, and the visible content is from tab #7 I wait 5 minutes. I close Firefox and wait 5-10 minutes. I open Firefox... I'm up to 22 now. This has been going on for about a week (at least) now.

In the past before this started happening, occasionally if I was moving too fast it would happen, so I would go slower (I thought cache) and it would work. Now, it's ridiculous.


NOTE : there are 7 tabs I want to keep open for now... I've been trying to close all the rest for some time now!

For some reason few of them are closing!!! I'm down to 16... Though I can't figure out the difference in steps that let me close them. They were randomly located in the tabs that I keep trying to close everytime they're in there.
