Every time I close a window that has opened up (not a tab) all the open windows close and it's driving me nuts!

Posted

If I have opened up a link and it comes up as a separate window and not a tab, then I go to close that window, all the other Firefox windows that are open will close too. Is there anything to prevent this? It is extremely annoying when I have to go and open all the windows/tabs again!

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== since upgrading

Do you have that problem when running in the Firefox SafeMode? http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode Don't select anything right now, just use "Continue in SafeMode."

If not, see this: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/troubleshooting+extensions+and+theme...

I had the same problem, and followed the suggestion to open in safe-mode. By trial & error I found that disabling all add-ons worked for my problem. It was very frustrating before so hopefully this will be a permanent fix.

Thanks for suggestion.
