Hotmail (only) now opens in a window not a tab
As of yesterday - with NO downloads or updates to anything having been made - MSN.com opens Hotmail (when I click the link from that page) in a new window, not a tab. Any link in any email, however, opens in a new tab in the original window. When I og out of Hotmail, it returns me to MSN so the process gets repeated every time I start Firefox & it loads my normal set of tabs. Why has this suddenly started? How do I fix it (return to opening Hotmail in a tab)?
