Firefox refuses to open new tabs after 10-20 minutes of using it

After using Firefox for some time (from 10 to 20 minutes, usually), it simply refuses to open any new tabs, while all that were open previously continue to work normally. Click on "+" sign next to the last open tab simply produces no reaction, and the same is with "Open Link in the New Tab" command from the right-click menu. When restarted, problem disappears, just to reoccur a few minutes latter. This has started to happen about a month ago, all of the sudden. Has anyone experienced something similar? I'm on Win7, using the latest version of Firefox. I have tried to start Firefox with all the plug-ins disabled - nothing has changed. Thanks in advance!

Boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support to see if that has effect in case security software is causing problems.
