Firefox help

way off topic...

someone help me out.

How do you make Firefox open a link in a new tab instead of a new window(Window OS)?

for example if I click on a link on this site it opens in a new window not a tab... I can't seem to be able to change that behavior I have tried a few options and extensions.

Re: Firefox help

There are some extensions to do that... And I think v1.0 has a "beta" option built in that you can enable by editing a file.

This is the extension listed in the FireFox FAQ:

Re: Firefox help

are you running version 1.0?

type about:config in the address bar

use the find feature and type in tab...

scroll to the bottom of the list and where it says single window: open in tabs double click so it turns the value to true

Re: Firefox help

I have the newest version (1.0 I think) and all I have to do is right-click and open in new tab or Control-T opens one.

You can do that too... I just like all my windows to open as tabs unless I want it to open in a new window then I just shift+ click

Middle mouse button/scroll wheel click should do the trick too
