    I'm on a web site and I click on the x to close the tab. Instead of the next closest tab showing on my screen, some other web site comes up. Like just now, I clicked off of Facebook and Ebay appeared. I had three other tabs and none of them were Ebay.

    I'm running a 64 bit unofficial version of Firefox called Nightly. Maybe it's a flaw. Or maybe it's some new way to slip in some advertising. It's kind of annoying.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    Not that I've ever done that but I bet one of them was that Jasmine chick. She can beat a pop up blocker like it was a dick.

    Which is worse: Using Firefox, or a grown man on Facebook?

    I don't have that problem, G, but I'm also using a Firefox clone called TenFourFox, and it's supposedly up to date, but it gets super sluggish on here, even when I clear the cache. It also has been doing weird shit like when I click the box to enter my UN and PW, it highlights the whole page, other strange little things like that just for the last 2 or 3 months. I think I just need to wipe my drive and do a fresh install from the bottom up. BTW, there is a plugin for FF called "NoScript" that can be a minor pain sometimes, but it might help your problem ?

    Firefox is the best browser I've ever used IMO. Haters gonna hate!
