I use Gmail and when there are links in a message any time that I've clicked them for as long as I've been using Firefox they open in a tab immediately to the right of the tab I'm in (and I have the setting set to use new tabs instead of new windows).


As of a few days ago, and only in Firefox, not Chrome, when I'm clicking links that would normally do this (or open a pop-up window, when appropriate) I see a tab very quickly open and close in the position to the right of the current tab (or a pop-up window do so even more rapidly, sometimes you can't even tell it's happened).


Is anyone else having this occur?  


It's not happening on my partner's computer under Firefox, either, and I configured his Firefox exactly like mine is when I set everything up a few months ago.

I have lost access to my other half's country music site, the station has a banner that the station is having an issue with FF.  They hope to resolve it soon.
