It is not working by using the shortcut 'Ctrl+T', nor by selecting it from menu File > New Tab, nor by pressing the '+' sign next to the open tabs. I didn't received any crash reports, or errors messages. The 'new tab' will open only by holding the 'Ctrl' and clicking on any link, which will bring a new tab. The 'open in new window' option apparently it is working fine. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: The new tab is now working: 1. Using the shortcut 'Ctrl+T' 2. Selecting it from menu File > New Tab 3. Pressing the '+' sign next to the open tabs It happens every time, regardless of the focus on the page, or the website's content opened in the browser. Actual Results: By making those steps, nothing happens, like the 'new tab' option is not available. The browser doesn't crash. Expected Results: Should open new tab. I am using the default theme.

Please test again in Safe Mode (http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode) to ensure that this problem is not raised by an installed extension.
I have tested it in Safe Mode and as you said, it worked with no issues. Finally I uninstalled several addons I don't use(uTorrent, Ask bar, Adobe Contribute, Logitech Device Detection) and disabled one plugin (Winamp Application Detector). Apparently the isssue is fixed. I am not sure which one of the uninstalled adons gave me headackes. Thank you Henrik for your prompt answer.
You could help us by reinstalling those add-ons until the issue is happening again. That way the author of the extension can be notified and the issue be fixed for all users of the extension. Thanks.
