Hi, Since the last update, when I click on a link, the new tab can't be launched. It opens and closed immediatly. I have to click a second time to open it. It is the same problem when I open a new tab manually, I type web address, and when I click on "Enter", the tab closes... I have to do it again and it works. It is not the first time. Next year, after an update, I had the same problem. No change on my systems (Windows 10) and on my MacBook too... Is there anyone who have the same problem ? How to resolve it ? Thank you

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window
