Well, one way to find out which plugin or add-on (On Firefox: Tools -> 
is to start with the new profile, and start addin in one plugin at a

add-on (assuming you had add-ons in the original profile), and after each
add, restart firefox and see if the tab problem re-appears after each add.

My personal experience with add-ons, and latest firefox, see:
