All of the sudden I am getting two windows when clicking on a link in Facebook. How can I stop this from happening? Please HELP

Today I discovered that when I was in facebook, and clicked on a link, anywhere, I would get a blank window and then another window would open up and have the links information on it. Things are really slow with this happening. I've checked out the popup tab, and I don't have it checked. There is nothing in the list either. PLEASE help me get rid of this problem. I have uninstalled firefox and reinstalled it. Would downloading an older version help?? Thank you for any help you can give me.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

Actually, I downloaded a new app today and just disabled it, and everything is working as it should now. So, I take it when I want to use the app, I enable it while using, and then disable it when I'm not, or is there anything I can do to make it work right all the time?? Thank you again for all your help. It is so very much appreciated!!!!
