I just installed Firefox version 73.0.1 on Mac Catalina (version 10.15.3). When I click on an external link, like a link embedded in the body of an email, two browser windows open. One window is the homepage and the second is the URL of the external link. This only happens if the Firefox browser is not already opened. If the browser is already opened, the external link URL opens in a second tab as expected. I've already followed directions to change the action for a content type and reset actions for all content types in article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-repeatedly-opens-empty-tabs-or-windows but it did not fix the issue.

I am using Firefox browser on my MacBook Pro and I have noticed the following.

When I quit the Firefox app (no background activity), and I click on a link that I receive in an email (from my Mail app), then Firefox opens 2 windows. One is empty and the second leads to the desired link.

On the other hand, if I don't quit the Firefox app but simply close it (x symbol), then when I click on a link it open correctly in a single window.
