I open browser to home page, click a link on that page to open a new tab per the link/tab settings I have chosen, new tab opens to the link but also changes the original home page to the link I chose. Now, both tabs are of the link I chose. Have tried all kinds of tab settings, rebooted, etc. to no avail, also tried update. Problem started with 3.6 or so, updating to 4.0 didn't help. Almost all of my add-on's were disabled when I upgraded to 4.0 and I haven't added anything new since problem started. Using XPSP3

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