firefox does not open new tab

I have been using Firefox 3.6 and it works quite well, except that a week ago it stopped opening new tabs (when you click on the + sign for new tabs). Cannot find any help in the Firefox help pages. (Before you tell me to upgrade to 4.0, I did that and it crashes at least once a day, which practically never happened with 3.6.) I'm using a Lenovo T510t and Windows 7
