Why can't I manually bring up a new tab in Firefox 3.6.16? I have Windows 7 and didn't have the problem with other versions of Firefox.

My question says it all. I click on the new tab button and nothing opens. Clicking on links will open a new tab if needed, or using "Open in New Tab." seems to work okay.

Uninstall the Ask toolbar and it should work again. There is a compatibility issue with the Ask toolbar and Firefox that prevents new tabs from being opened.
There are a couple of places to check for the Ask toolbar:
* Check the Windows Control panel for the Ask Toolbar - http://about.ask.com/apn/toolbar/docs/default/faq/en/ff/index.html#na4
* Also check your list of extensions, you may be able to uninstall it from there - https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Uninstalling+add-ons
