Links open in a new browser instead of a new tab.

Hello, yet again. I'm afraid that I need to ask your help yet again too.

Hi I am using Windows 7 on my desktop and the Firefox browser opens links from emails in a new browser instead of a new tab. I do have "open new windows in a new tab instead" , under tools; options, Tabs ticked. I have tried unticking it and then re-ticking it but neither make any difference.

Hope you can help!

Many thanks northumbria61!

I restarted my PC for the umpth time and that seems to have cured it! Now, I need to post another problem about getting rid of a horrible tool bar that someone in my family has downloaded!

Thank you for your support!
