Open link in new tab fails in Ver 102

Ver 102 just downloaded Settings are set to Open link in New Tab, not in a new window.

It doesn't work. A new window opens regardless

And I am getting really tired of these constant updates, bringing faults and need to rebuild all my settings each time. It used to be faultless. Now it fails to work properly.

Additionally, when I click on the " + " sign at the top of the browser, to open a new Tab, a new WINDOW opens, a tab cannot be opened. BUT, in that New Window, click on the plus sign, and it works properly. A tab opens.

This has, of course, destroyed all the open tabs I had, and thus my current areas of interest and browsing history.

Once again, I should like to suggest that the equivalent of the "Restore Point" in windows operating systems be provided for the browser.

My only wild guess is to make sure -- browser.tabs.tabmanager.enabled -- is True. Copied it to make arrows for Tab Overflow but it seems logical to chk it. I made/keep a Test Profile to Test such things and have find Troubleshoot Mode (FF Safe Mode) doesn't always behave the same as a Test Profile.

Thank you. I checked that several times, during which checks it did not work.

BUT, I have now checked again, it now does work. Weird.

Thank you for the prompt
