I just updated to the newest version of Firefox (says 3.6.11 in "About Firefox"). Links now open in new windows instead of tabs in the same browser window. My settings are set to do this but it doesn't work.

Someone said the AskToolbar extension was the problem, but I went to Tools-->Add-Ons and saw that I didn't have that extension. Anybody know whassap? Thanks!!

Did you check if another extension is causing it?

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