I have used firefox for a long time and had no problems. Now, all of a sudden when I open my bookmarks or hotmail they open a new window and not a tab. I never changed anything to make this happen it just started happening. I turned my computer on and restarted it but it didn't help. I already tried different things and then I went on firefox support and I read my problem on the forum and what I should do about it. (I have a mac) Someone said to go to about:config and then go to browser.link.open_newwindow and chage it to 3 but when I typed in about:config it says warning this could void your warranty do not go here unless you know what you're doing! Needless to say, I got scared and stopped!!

I did all the suggestions for clearing a site from the location bar and the only option I have is to turn off the history suggestions in the preferences to not see the sites. If I clear the history and the site is not in my bookmarks, where is this information being stored on my computer and how do I get rid of it? The computer is a desktop Mac.
