Firefox will not open new window, Why?

Posted

I have Vista home base premium operating system. I am a regular user of Mozilla firefox after had lots of positive feedback as one of the best browser. I had no problem for a good while, until recently I found out my add-on firebug stop working. Then I noticed that firefox stopped working properly, ie; it will no more open new window/s. One window will open after rebooting and i can have a number of tabs opened. When I right click on a web link and take the option to open it in a new window it will not open. When I take the option to open it in a new tab then that would be ok. When I go to the toolbar and click on File and chose option "open new window" again it will not open. I have on many accasions completely installed Firefox using the IObit software and use the advance system care to clean the registry and completely scan the system. I then reinstalled the latest version of Mozilla Firefox. I did that twice. The problem is still there. About the ad-on firebug, when I go to the toolbar and click on Tools, i can see Firebug with the extended arrow, but when I click on the arrow to the extended options, it simply would not respond. There must something going on, please help.

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).

See Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems and Troubleshoot issues with plugins like Flash or Java to fix common Firefox problems

Hi Cor-el! I would like to thank you very much for taking your time to help me out. This was giving me a real head ace. You suggesting did help. Everything is ok now. My only little problem now is the plugin. I actually click all options in the safemode including the ad-ons. Now am getting some blank plugin. If you have any suggestion, i will appreciate. Again thanks a million for your help, much appreciated.
