Can no longer open additional tabs using Forefox 17.0

I downloaded the update for Firefox 17.0 and installed it with no problems. After completion, I discovered that I could not open additional tabs as with previous versions of Firefox. I tried various methods, including the File pulldown menu, clicking on the tab stop next to an already open website, and using Ctrl+T. Nothing worked. I can open additional windows, but find it much more convenient to use tab stops, and am currently unable to do so using the latest version of Firefox.

Hello cahoughton, check it in Safe Mode, in Safe Mode window select "Start in Safe Mode" and see if this happen again, if not see: Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems

also in your "System Details" you have installed 2 flash versions (Shockwave Flash 11.5 r502 & Shockwave Flash 11.4 r402) and 2 Adobe PDF Plug-In (Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 10.1.4 & Netscape 10.1.3).
