Lost My Tabs
« on: April 04, 2011, 10:17:32 PM »
A few days ago my tabs ceased working. There is a +. But, it will not work. Any ideas?  I have 3.6.16 and it sounds like I do not want 4.  :(

Do you mean that you can't recreate new tabs or that Firefox is not opening up with your old tabs?

I can't create new tabs. The "+" is not hot.

That is very strange. Jim, should he re-install his 3.6.6 version?

Try starting firefox in safe mode. It sounds like maybe an add-on is malfunctioning.

Brother Richard, are you still having this issue and did Immanuel's suggestion work?

To start Firefox in safe mode.... while in Firefox click on "help" and then click on "restart with addons disabled"

If that works then it's an addon issue.

"help" did not offer me a restart in safemode with addons disabled.  But, I found a workaround for anyone who finds their tabs not working.  "control" and left click on url will open link in new tab!  :)   Trials endured will bring blessings!  I love "one clicks".  I need to remember "ctrl", but that's ok. It is faster than the old two clicks which ought not ever be.  The new tab ought to have defaulted to my default page. Maybe in Windows 10,000 it will be fixed.  :)
