I am using FF 57.0.3 with Windows 10.
Lately there seems to be something about when a new tab is generated that I don't understand.
Some times when I move to a new site it will open without generating a new tab, other times It will open in a new tab. Often I will have several tabs when I had not used the "Open in a new Tab" control.

Thanks in Advance for any help. ](*,)

untouched firefox opens new tab on link -> web site dependent - some sites do.

"Open in a new Tab" is not helpful from my view
take a look at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... k-new-tab/ (active here)
or https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... ap-to-tab/ (where right click is not helpful)

Thanks for your response!
I have been trying to keep track of when this "added tab" happens.
Not sure if is the only place, but recently it happened when I open a new site from that is open, like with a link button.
But on your links that did not happen????
