Tabbed browsing is no longer working, even though its enabled. It happened just as I upgraded to the newest firefox.

I can no longer open a new tab in my browsing window. I have to open up multiple windows in order to have different websites open. It occurred just yesterday when I upgraded firefox

Re: Tabbed browsing is no longer working, even though its enabled. It happened just as I upgraded to the newest firefox.

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.


Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.

Hello mcfadden.86, check it in Safe Mode, in Safe Mode window select "Start in Safe Mode" and see if this happen again, if not then see: Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems

(If the problem does not happen in Safe Mode, it is most likely because of an extension, theme or hardware acceleration).


thank you
