Re: New Tab will not open

This issue can be caused by an extension or plugin that isn't working properly.

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).

  • Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.

See:

If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.

  • Use "Disable all add-ons" on the Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode start window to disable all extensions.
  • Close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

Re: New Tab will not open

I uninstalled Ask toolbar and the tabs started working again

I was having the same issue, and sure enough, uninstalling the ask toolbar solved my problem too.

I encountered the same issue...and after disabling the Pandora TV toolbar everything is working smoothly.....

I didn't have the Ask toolbar though....

The Foxit PDF toolbar also screws with the open new tab on Firefox, its weird as its intermittent and does not always cause the problem, i just disabled it anyway. It also seems to be affiliated with Ask.com
