links that open new page wont work

more options

Whenever I click a link that opens a new tab automatically, it will not actually take me to that link. Instead it just opens a blank tab. For example: if I were to click a link to a conversation in facebook from my email, it would open a blank page instead of taking me to the conversation.

I have to right click EVERY single link and click open in new tab. Very frustrating and also a brand new problem. It has never done that before. It has been doing this for two days.

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
