Everywhere or only on particular sites?

So two actions are occurring?
You have the same link open in the existing tab, & also in a new window?

Have you tried Safe Mode?

In Firefox Preferences > General > Tabs

Do you have "Open new windows in a new tab instead" & "When you open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately" Checked???
The desire that something be true, rather than the desire for truth itself, is why pseudoscience is pop-culture.
