Do you have any Conduit toolbar (from ClixSense or any other site) installed on Firefox? I was on FF v29 till morning and everything was fine. Then I noticed Conduit updated all their toolbars earlier today.
In the afternoon I upgraded my FF to v30 and ever since I have a really weird problem. The + button to open a new a tab or the shortcut Control+T (Cmd+T on Mac) to open a new tab will not work.
I thought it might be a bug so I tried searching but no one else reported it. I decided to disable all my add-ons and enable it one by one to see if one of them was causing the problem. Eventually, it was a Conduit toolbar which was causing the New Tab issue. I disabled the toolbar and bingo everything is normal again.
So if you have a Conduit toolbar, please check and let me know if you face a similar issue.
Well, I haven't installed the Conduit add-on to my browser since I manually check for ads while doing work *scratches head*
so I didn't know there were issues -- but I did notice that on a fresh start of the updated Firefox that ( once again
) that memory consumption is a tad higher ( blame me, I have add-ons I need for work installed
But if you'd like to have the old look ( aka Firefox v28 format ), you can visit the Mozilla Add-ons and get the Classic Theme Restorer
( this was offered to fix the issues of the old v29 which was considered by some users as a headache
) -- the add-on still works on the v30 and is now on v1.2.0

Also, try the little tip from that page:
Quote:It is recommended to switch to a new clean profile (or at least delete 'localstore.rdf' from profile folder) to avoid UI issues after upgrading from Firefox 28 (and older) to Firefox 29 (and newer).
Note: Hitting "Restore Defaults" in customizing mode (Fx29+) is (almost) equal to deleting 'localstore.rdf' and easier to perform.
