When I click a link in Mail (Mac OS) Firefox opens two windows. The frontmost window is always blank. The other window shows the page to which the link pointed. I would like to avoid having two windows open.

Links from Mail open two windows. One is empty.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== In the past couple of weeks. I had not noticed this behavior previously
