I want to open new tabs with other ones open. So I click the + button for tabs and it does nothing. I right click and click new tab and still nothing. How do I get that feature to work again.

Posted

I click the + button to open a new tab and it doesn't do anything, not even open a new tab. I try to right click and open a new tab and still don't work. But if I right click a link and click open in new tab it will work. How do I get to open my tabs again with the + button?
