So for about 2 months now I've had this issue.
I can have multiple tabs open, and click on them just fine to switch to them. However, if Firefox doesn't have the focus, and THEN I click on one of the tabs in the window, the tab will close. I'm not clicking on the "x", I'm left-clicking on the tab name.
I can't find anything in the settings that addresses it, and I've tried opening firefox in safe mode and it does the same thing.

Windows 7, 64 bit
Firefox 55.0.3 64 bit

If no improvement using Safe Mode, do you have the same problem if you create a new profile and test it with no extensions or non-default themes installed?
