Mozilla FireFox?

This doesn't seem to happen at any other site, but why, here on DVDTalk, does my Firefox browser open random DVDTalk Tabs while I am browsing the forums?

Blake, it is version 0.8. As far as I know the only extension is the google search bar thing. In the extensions list it lists no extensions.

You could upgrade to the latest version (0.9.2) and see if that fixes it.

If upgrading, it is best to backup your profile folder first (make sure the bookmarks.html file is incuded. Then Unistall from the add/remove programs in the control panel. Then install 0.9.2

You should upgrade to 0.9.2 anyway. It fixes a fairly serious security hole.

If I remember correctly, it goes through the normal installation, but keeps your bookmarks, etc. So, the full and upgrade are essentially the same.

I've never had that problem -- then again, I use the Tab Killer extension.
