Why does Firefox randomly disconnect my tabbed windows into their own window?

I use tabbed browsing in my Firefox, since up grading to Firefox 18 it will occasionally, at random, disconnect a tab from the group. There doesn't seem to be a pattern and I am not telling it to separate the tab from the group.

Hi DHarbour60,
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:

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


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