I have a very similar problem. Firefox doesn't open multiple tabs except when I try and open a file from my desktop. I ran a virus check on the files, and it showed no virus. I also download the HighJack program and it said no viruses. Also, sometimes when typing my curser jumps to other places then where I was typing. A friend of mine said she had the same thing, but an IT tech helped her (she works in a school). So, following the advise you gave the other gentleman, I have the log from the HiJack program and I pasted it below. Can you help me> Also, please don't delete this, I tried to find the public forum; it's my first time here. . Thank you.

Hi, welcome to daniweb. Not sure what you mean by this

I also download the HighJack program and it said no viruses.

It doesn't say whether you have a virus or not, it is basically a scanner program to show what is running, what starts when the computer starts, what extra items you have added to your browsers and various other things. "Some" listings "might" indicate and infection but those have to be investigated and the log itself doesn't indicate one way or another it just gives listings.

Do this for me,
Please Download ATF-Cleaner.exe by Atribune
Save it to the desktop for easy access.
RUN ATF-Cleaner.exe.

-- Click on ATF-Cleaner to run it
-- Where it says Select Files To Delete, Check the Select All Option
-- Click Empty Selected > OK

If you use Firefox browser, do this also:

* Click Firefox at the top and choose Select All from the list.
* Click the Empty Selected button.
* NOTE : If you would like to keep your saved passwords, click No at the prompt.

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBA-M) to your Desktop.

* DoubleClick mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install MBA-M.
* Be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When MBA-M finishes, Notepad will open with the log. Please save it where you can find it easily. The log can also be opened by going to Start > All Programs > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware > Logs > log-date.txt.

Reboot the computer

Now run a NEW HiJackThis scan and save the log. Post back here with the MBA-M log and the new HiJackThis log.

This is good. I've been meaning to find a solution for a similar problem myself, which is for my friends computer and I'm sure everything I'll read here is a help.
