Tabs don't open in Firefox

    I've just installed Firerox 0.93 (first install of any Firefox). But
    it's only allowing me to search in a single-window mode; i.e., new
    tabs never open. I can manually create a new tab via CTRL-T; but even
    there, when going to a new web page, everything appears in that tab

    Any suggestions?

    Are you using Multizilla or Tab Browser Extension? The newer versions
    of these can cause tab problems.

    Not to my knowledge. I only performed the standard install and
    haven't added anything else.

    (BTW - I'm on Win-XP.)

    Sorry to post a follow-up to my own message. My original post was

  5. This is the default behaviour. A 'new window' command will open in a
    new window. If you want to fix this, try Tabbrowser Preferences
    extension or the Single Window extension (both available on

    Tabrowser preferences allows new windows in 'pop-up style', while Single
    Window doesn't (so requested popups with s specified size will open in a
    new tab with that size overided.

    I'd lubricate the tab-hanger very lightly and then work the tab rollers to
    see if they loosen.

    /runs away.

    The other advice should solve your problem, it's just the settings.
