Re: v.3.6.10; I could not open a new tab either using the icon at the Navigation Bar, or the "new tab" at the end of the tab strip; how can I correct this?

Doing a right-click on a topic and opening it in a new bar is NOT a problem; a new tab with the new topic opens swiftly.

The problem is when I intend to copy/paste a URL to a new tab: I can not open a new tab to do this - I need to content myself using the existing tab, to paste the URL, OR open a new window to paste the URL.

This has not been the case in my decade(?) of use of Firefox. This is the first time this thing happened.

HELP please. Thank you very much. junReyes Philippines

@cor-el Thanks for the help... I've actually resolved the problem as suggested by our good friend Google... and suggested a similar suggestion as yours, AND IT WORKED! Via the Safe Mode, I activated "Reset toolbars and controls"; re-started Firefox >>>> DONE! ^_^m
