How to stop Firefox from closing multiple tabs when I only want to close single ones?

When closing tabs by clicking it's own "close cross/button" I often get a popup sayin I'm about to close x many tabs. If I don't click the popup firefox closes also tabs that I haven't clicked to close (because I want them to remain open). If I don't clikck the popup, the tabs that get closed seem to be ones that I've opened through a tab that I do want to close.

As you can guess, this is highly frustrating. I have loads of tabs open at any given time and I'm using Tree Style Tabs to keep them a bit more organized. I haven't found anyone else with this problem so could it be causing this behaviour?

When I reopen a closed tab, sometimes it would just load the previous page rather than the last opened page. For example, if I was on the Guardian homepage and I clicked on an article, closed the tab, then reopened with Cmd+Shift+T, occasionally it would load the Guardian homepage instead. I can get back to the article by going back a page (Cmd + left arrow), which is kinda weird.

When I open Firefox a tab for gmail opens every time, but cannot be closed (there is no "X" on the right side of the tab). Therefore, when browsing in other tabs, gmail is always open. How can I close it, or better yet, remove from my computer? It does not show up in the list of programs on my computer within the Control Panel.

My wife inadvertently made herself administrator on my machine, a windows 10 Thinkpad.The process involve setting up a ms. account, which apparently made her administrator. I was forced to make myself administrator. I tried a reset ultimately of FF to restore the form in which FF. presents itself. I had also lost much of the desktop items which belonged to my wife as well as all Bookmarks.

No full access to help on Top banner nor tools or all the rest.

After WIN10 did it's usual 2nd tues of the month update (9/2017) when I open FF to read yahoo mail a new tab will open and takes me to goMSNfwlink/hotmail/outlook etc. and MSN web site opens.

Mail tab remains unaffected.

Ok, it just did it while I am here (3X) Grrrrrrr. So it's not just mail page. My homepage is "blank page" I can find my way around without any help with just my bookmarks and search functions.

Windows will not allow me to revert to a saved restore point, so I can't do that. Error msg says 10 days have lapsed can't go back, contact sysadmin. More Grrrrrr : OS is Win10 FF 55.0 browser (used FF for years) Only add on are adaware and ublock Shockwave is disabled Ran MWB and Panda, no infections. Ready to edit reg, please point the way! thx in advance

Edited to add reg edit attempt

At work I have multiple larger screens than the laptop screen itself.

The only way to get rid of it is to close all open tabs.

MSN is my home page. I right click on links that I am interested in, choose "Open Link in a new tab" and they used to pop open on my tab line. Suddenly, when I upgraded to Firefox 63.0.1 it fails. It fails to open in a new window also. It just disappears.

Other web pages work just fine. So I am perplexed.

If I shutdown my computer while Firefox is open, it will start up automatically with all of my previous tabs open next time I turn on my computer. It does this faster than my VPN can start up, thus exposing my true IP to what ever sites I had open when I turned off my computer. Is there any way to make it so that Firefox doesn't do this?
