Browser is set to open new links in Tabs.  Occasionally opens in new Browser window instead.  Usually happens after several tabs opened through link clicks.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Set prefs to open new link in Tab
2.  Click several links, each from a new tab (number is usually more than 4 but not always) successively
Actual Results:  
Links will begin to open in new windows

Expected Results:  
Links open in new tabs

Restart of Firefox fixes this issue, but only temporarily
Are you sure this isn't caused by some add-on?
