Always, I have been able to choose between tabbing and selecting a new window. Now I cannot get a new window at all. It started a few days ago with an "auto-update". Figuring that the software might have gotten corrupted, I loaded the newest browser, but the problem is not solved.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select new window
2. nothing happens
3. must quit Firefox to open a new window

Expected Results:  
Open a new window

There have not been any crashes or freezing. I can still move between tabs or go to bookmarked content on a tab
Can you please create a new profile and see if it happens there? This WFM on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20090627 Minefield/3.6a1pre (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) ID:20090627045111 http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Profiles

Try comment 1 first and if it doesn't still happen.  Try disabling your extensions one by one until you find the culprit.
