I am unable to open a blank tab. Just started doing this. Why?

Suddenly my browser will not allow me to open a blank tab. If I go to help or something like that a new tab will open however, clicking "open a new tab" does absolutely nothing. I have done nothing out of the ordinary to cause this as far as I can tell.

Re: I am unable to open a blank tab. Just started doing this. Why?

Please Update to the latest Firefox 16.0.x version.

  • Help > About Firefox

The Firefox 10.0.2 version that you currently run is no longer supported with security updates


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.

First thing to do is to update to Firefox 10.0.10 and then see how it is.
