I cannot get a new tab to open in FF 18. It doesn't work whether I click on + or do Fil; New Tab. Can anyone tell me what's wrong?
The new tab opens when I click a link in the existing window, but, not when I click the + or File; New Tab. It always worked in previous versions. I tried re-installing, but, that didn't fix it either.
