In the last few days, suddenly and without my deliberate request, a new tab opens every time I click on something to view on my home page. How can I permanently get rid of this horrible feature?

You can mess with the new tab settings in Firefox > Options > Tabs. Where exactly are you clicking on the new page?

Check out these options to stop new tabs from opening.

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.
