I am using Firefox 7.0.1 on Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.7. Often times when I make a new window, the tab bar contains only a single "+" tab, even after I got to a URL:

Firefox Screencapture

If I make new tabs, then I cannot get back to the first tab I created. This is extremely annoying. Is there a fix for this?

Did you try to disable all plugins? – patrix Oct 6 '11 at 20:25
@patrix: good suggestion. I have FireBug installed, maybe that's what's causing it. – Josh Oct 6 '11 at 20:28
