Why does Firefox keep on opening new tabs when I log in to my Facebook account? It only stops when I cancel 4 or 5 tabs already opened.

I just opened my Facebook account today. It happened again i.e. several window tabs opened showing the same first page of my opened Facebook account. This is very annoying.

This issue is probably caused by the Facebook Toolbar 1.7.3 extension

Do a malware check with some malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.
