since the update, mozilla is doing strange things.

at times it is told, that there were open browser windows. which are not, or not visible for me, not even for task manager.

the next problem was, that i wanted to fill my bank account informations, which were allowed to popup all the time, but dunno open since the update. i was not able to get to my account. i allowed pop up windows in general. i also changed that new links should open in tabs, i cancelled this. 

i can open one window of mozilla ... then only new tabs

i dont know what else to do

would be grateful for help


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. no chance to open a second browser window
Actual Results:  
i de-installed mozilla and new installed it also. no changes happened.
i made a systemwiederherstellung for one week earlier, but the problem still is there.

Expected Results:  
i want to use my mozilla like i did before. with several windows and within them several tabs.

working the normal way like before

when double clicking on mozilla opening a new browser window.

or when pressing file ... then opening a new window ... that there will be a new browser window
Please do basic troubleshooting like:

- Firefox's safe-mode to exclude extension/theme problems
- a new profile
- a reinstall in a new empty folder (especially needed after a system restore)
