Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

From time to time a tab opens really quickly and closes immediately. Is this some kind of malware or is it a known bug?

How could I find out?

When does it happen? When you are doing particular tasks? What are your habits? Specific sites etc? –  AthomSfere Apr 28 '13 at 1:38
it doesn't seem to follow any recognizable pattern. I dont visit any shady sites, at least none that im aware of. –  user1721135 Apr 28 '13 at 1:41
So if you were to just sit on Google.com, no searches it would happen? –  AthomSfere Apr 28 '13 at 2:01
My gut says it is caused by a buggy extension. Try turning off some of those and see if you can identify the culprit. –  jpaugh Apr 28 '13 at 4:42
thx ill try deinstalling the extensions. @AthomSfere it only happens like once or twice a day so I cant exactly say when it happens and when it doesnt. –  user1721135 Apr 28 '13 at 10:03
