why are links being shown in new windows?

Until a few days ago, when I would sign in, and click on my EMAIL, a new tab would open just beside the Xfinity home page.  Ditto if I went ot a link from the home page.  Now, all of a sudden, they open in completely new windows, requiring me to switch back and forth.

I use Firefox as my browser.

Any ideas?

 i use Firefox also and the links open in a new tab,


so a first thing to check is Firefox's options;  

Look in options General category, the "Tabs" section, & make sure "Open new windows in a new tab instead" is enabled.

on my own, so really appreciate the help!
