I use a PC laptop with a touchpad as my mouse. When I right click on a link and click "Open Link in New Tab" it opens the link in a new window instead. I have a few Add-ons but none installed recently, and this problem started this morning for some curious reason.

Has anyone ever seen this before? I sure could use some help.

I suspect I will be able to use the sidebar to organize my bookmarks, just like organize bookmarks used to work, now that I have found this out.

Why does it make sense?

I am using 3.6 because I like how it spreads out my toolbars instead of just giving me the bookmarks in the corner and the lonesome firefox in the opposite corner. I know I can open the bookmark toolbar but it is not the same. I want the file, edit, view, history, bookmarks, tools, help toolbar across. How can I get the new firefox to do that
