Suddenly, Safari explodes with duplicate window and/or tabs for a single URL.  If I click on a tab, I get the message that tabs must be closed to go to a new page.  I approve this action, the windows disappear, only to have the next page appear with another pile of duplicates.


Is this a virus?  If so, is there a downloadable software solution?


Thanks for any help.
