Open always in Tab! - FireFox


Hello!

I searched for some plugins for FireFox but didn't found the right one. I want it to open always in a new tab the links not in a new window. But I want it with the left-click not with the middle-click. Just like Opera.
I found some plugins that open me every link in a new tab, but only that should be opened in a new tab that had to open in a new window. Normal links should open in same tab.

Thank you!
Boby

I used a tabbed browsing plug-in for Firefox 0.8... I forget exactly what it was called, but it had a ton of options, including the one you want. After installing 0.9 I noticed there weren't a whole lot of supported plug-ins yet. The tabbed browsing plug-in I used in 0.8 was apparently not compatible with 0.9 and a new version is yet to surface (well I haven't checked recently to be honest)...

If you press Control + Left Mouse button on the link then it will open in a new tab... is that what you're looking to do?

Here is a link to the current tab-related extensions, you may find something useful there:

@ pibby

yes, yes..like CTRL+Left-Click ... but I want it without CTRL. Just a normal click.
I searched before on the link you gave me http://update.mozilla.org/extensions...rowsing&numpg=
but I did't found something.

Thank's anyway!

Tools-->Options-->Advanced-->Browsing and check the box next to "Select new tabs opened from links" should do it.

about:config

I'm sure there's an option in there.

If you have a mouse with a scroll wheel and click on the link using that scroll/middle button, then it will open in a new tab- no need to hold down control.

Hope that helps some

Get the TBE (Tab Browser Extension). It will do what you're looking for (cause it's the same i was looking for)
