Recently - every time I open one page with Firefox - all the pages that are minimized open with it? This never happened before and is VERY annoying? Can I fix
If I have multiple windows open but minimized THEY ALL open each time I bring up either a NEW window, or one of the minimized ones? This is new - and terrible as it increase research time by 50% of more!

I have no idea how to cure this.
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
- Do not click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.
What the heck is "Safe Mode" how do I find it. What is the danger if I do this?
You can use one of these to start Firefox in Safe mode:
- On Windows, hold down the Shift key while starting Firefox with a double-click on the Firefox desktop shortcut
- On Mac, hold down the Options key while starting Firefox
- Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
