Description

2 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:44.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/44.0
Build ID: 2016021000

Steps to reproduce:

Whenever typing in a url in a new tab and hitting enter, it switches to the old tab instead of simply going to that website. According to the instructions, hitting shift enter should open that website in the current tab, but instead it opens it up in a new window.

Thanks for taking the time to report this!
Does the problem still happen if you start Firefox in Safe Mode? (Safe Mode disables extensions and themes, hardware acceleration and some JavaScript stuff in order to exclude some possible reasons for problems. It does not disable plugins which are add-ons.) See http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode 

And does this also happen with a new and empty profile? See http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Basic%20Troubleshooting#w_8-make-a-new-profile and http://support.mozilla.org/kb/Managing%20profiles

Feel free to upgrade to the latest version and provide more information which exact plugins and extensions you have installed, on which operating system and version. Thanks.

Cannot reproduce the problem in Firefox 45 as many other bug reports by this reporter, hence proposing to close as WORKSFORME.

I don't know what else you want from me. I replicated it in safemode once, which disables addons, so that should mean that it happens with no addons enabled.
