Windows 7: Problem opening a new tab with Firefox

Problem opening a new tab with Firefox

Opening a new tab in Firefox (when a Firefox browser is already open) results in the message:- 'The address isn't valid. The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded'.

I've tried disabling all the add ons without result.

Any ideas. Thanks.
