Why are double windows opening in Firefox when clicking on a link?

Every time I click a link, Firefox opens two (2) windows. One with the URL link and one just with my FF home page. And fixes with easy to follow steps? Happens with both my MacBook Air, the old one and the new one. Both are running OS Catalina V10.15.2

Thank you!

TY:) You are the best and this ole gramma wannabe doesn't believe there's anything 'cranky' about you! LOL! You restored my faith in this Mozilla Community Support page as past ?s, plus this one, just did not get any responses or replies.

Keep up the great work you're doing here for all of us!

How old is Catalina now? It seems every new release of MacOS brings some odd stubborn problem for Firefox that takes a long time to solve. The simplest workaround is to keep a Firefox window running in the background.
