Hi, I got a annoying problem.

Firefox keeps opening new windows when it shouldn't like browsing the web.

Details:

When they open, the window you're at closes.
The window contains exactly the same contains as the closed one.

Help.

It's not an malware/virus infection because Avast and Malwarebytes Anti-malware detect nothing.

Firefox 3.6.3
Windows XP SP3

I think the add-ons caused the problem.

Disable the add-ons one at a time until you find which one is causing the problem.

It's not the add-ons. Problem STILL APPEARS

Deleted the file named mimeTypes.rdf and restarted Firefox but the problem is STILL THERE

Presumably you have checked the tabs setup is correct? Tools - Options - Tabs.

Know the problem now. I accdently DRAGGED the tab (1 cm from the tab) and it appears on an new window.

Any way to disable the drag to make window?

Can you not drag it back again to where it was?
