Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

I am using firefox v2.0.0.4.  When I want to load a new tab, I either use Ctrl-T or File/New Tab to load a new window.  When I click on the home icon, FF loads multiple windows identical to those already open, instead of just loading my home page.
I have tested this on a single window.  I load a new window and all previously open windows are displayed, instead of one blank window.  So, no matter what I do, every time I try to load a new blank page and go home, I end up with  numerous identical windows.

I haven't uninstalled/reinstalled FF but will try this after reporting
