Suddenly, my 'new tabs' function is not working...

Pushing + next to current tab... nothing.. button looks like I am clicking it, but nothing happens

File ---> New Tab NOT WORKING

Ctrl + T ---> NOT WORKING

Right clicking on a link in a window and clicking Open in New Tab... That works

But, the bottom line is, I can not open new blank tabs.

Please help! This just started this morning!

Uninstall the Ask toolbar and it should work again. There is a compatibility issue with the Ask toolbar and Firefox that prevents new tabs from being opened.
