I would like a New Tab button, instead of having to Click the + , or w/o having to Right Click. Looking for the instructions brings up about a thousand 'Topics'?

You have to click on the "+" to open a new tab in current Browser or right click link and open in new Tab. Beyond this functions that would be the use of Addons that add "Tab" functions - if they have them to do what your asking for.
I suppose you could add the Home icon to your toolbar and then middle-click the Home icon to open a new blank tab. Just make sure the Homepage settings is set to Blank Page and not the default Firefox Home.
Note that the '+' new tab button is customizable and can be moved to another toolbar (Navigation Toolbar) via the customize page if that is what you want. You can middle-click or double-click in free space on the Tab bar to open a new tab.
You can middle-click a link to open this link in a new tab. This also works in the Tab history list (right-click or hold the mouse left button on either Back or Forward button).
There are two prefs on the about:config page that determine where a new tab is opened:
- browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent false
- browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent true
