Everytime I click on my home page, it opens up a new tab on the tab bar

The other night I had around 15 tabs all opened and compressed any idea of why it does this?

Yeah it seems software but it didnt happen until I installed a new HD ha

Its Firefox, and its the little house icon next to the URL like in IE

Usually whenever you click on it it brings you to the same tab(home page)but now it has decided to open up a new one then another and so on

I havent really searched it out yet i was just throwing it out there to see if someone had the same problem what the hay

Go to Tools - Options - Tabs
Change the setting for: Open links that open in a new window to: the current tab
See if that helps

And regardless of anything else, it certainly isn't a hardware issue :)

Derp :clown:

Yea it only happened after I installed a new HD, another really annoying thing it does is that what it awakes after sleeping the mouse is one, it makes that sound after you disconnect a usb device 4 or 5 times, then it comes around

Everything else works fine though maybe ill go in to event viewer and device manager and all those other tools i was just being lazy lol
