Win 7 Firefox 3.6.13, new tab won't open when clicked, on desktop or laptop.

I cannot open a new tab in Firefox 3.6.13, running Windows 7. It doesn't work on my desktop, or my laptop. When I click on the "+" to add a tab, or right click on it and choose "New Tab", nothing happens.

'AskToolbar' extension is causing the issue. You can disable it in Tools, Add-ons, Extensions, and restart Firefox.

That was quick, and correct! Thanks. I had removed the toolbar from the view, but forgot to go and uninstall it. It got dropped on me when I wasn't paying attention. Thanks again.

I don't have an AskToolbar, nor a Yahoo toolbar. Between updating Firefox to 3.6.13, and MS Patch Tuesday last night, I cannot use right click to open a new window. I can open a link using right click and 'in new Tab' -- but I don't LIKE tabs! Lots of links on various pages won't open at all (it may be all of the links, I haven't tried ALL of them).

I tried reverting to 3.6.12, and the same problem occurred. Does that mean it came from Microsoft? Re-updated to 3.6.13 and it remains broken. So frustrated I want to cry!

Thank you. I can't believe the cure was this easy. Worked instantly.
