Firefox is opening new tabs on its own. I can just watch and in 3 minutes it opens 50 tabs

Posted

Problem started 2 days ago. I open up Firefox to play frontierville and when I go to my home page to do anything on it I get new tabs opening up every 5 seconds. I let go of my mouse and do nothing and it still keeps opening tabs. I let it go for a few minutes and I got up to 49 tabs and then I decided to shut it down. Could not reopen it unless I went to control,Alt,delete and closed Firefox there
