See Firefox repeatedly opens empty tabs or windows after you click on a link

You can have infinite tabs opening if you have selected Firefox as the application to handle a file if you get an Open with download window. Firefox should not be selected as the application to handle a file and you have to remove the action that is associated with that file type.

You can delete mimeTypes.rdf in the Profile Folder to reset all actions or set that action in Tools > Options > Applications to 'Always Ask'.

See ("File handling in Firefox 3 and SeaMonkey 2" and "Reset Download Actions")
