When opening an swf file that I have been able to open in all previous versions of firefox the latest update causes multiple tabs (278 at last count) and windows and I have to restart computer.  It won't even let me get into Task Manager to end process.  I will re install the old version of firefox and stick with it.  This latest version is ****.

Reproducible: Always
