Invalid address message when a new tab is selected

Posted

Suddenly, each time I want to open a new tab, I get a dialog box pop up in the new and empty browser tab, telling me the address is invalid. This is before I have typed anything into the address bar.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
