When deleting emails in my Outlook account n one of the firefox tabs, if I click a little too fast it suddenly opens a new window with the next email in the list. I have firefox set to open tabs, not new windows. And I cant see any setting that should be making it open a new window when clicking delete. Its never done this before till recently and its very annoying.

I was just deleting email from my junk folder by clicking the garbage icon to the far right and new windows did pop up, but that's because of fast clicking and the double click cause the new windows to pop up. Not a browser issue and there is no setting for "open a new window when clicking delete" in Firefox. Just slow down and allow the site to catch up. A 2 second delay in clicking allow me to empty my junk folder without a new window pop-up.

Thats pretty much what I've been doing. But I dont think I've had to be slow before. Maybe its a windows 11 thing since I was forced to start using that recently.

WEird how its only started happening for me recently. I dont rapid fire the delete button but I definitely need to wait almost 2 seconds now or it opens. Annoying. Thanks for the help.
