Right clicking on thread title in forums ... properties settings?


I am using Iceweasel (Firefox) 3.0.6 on a Debian Lenny amd64 installation, and when I right click on an LQ thread I get a first option 'Open thread in New window' and below it 'Open thread in New Tab'. Is it possible to swap these around?

I notice that the bottom entry on the right click popup menu is 'Properties' which returns:

Link Properties
Address: blah blah
Will open in: Same window

which is the effect of left clicking on the thread title.

I am only asking if it is possible for me to change my settings (somewhere) to automagically change the default to open in a new tab, since my recent monitoring of new posts using LQspy (which is really cool) always defaults to opening - upon a right click - the post in a new tab in my browser, which is what I want!

This isn't related to LQ in any way, but Preferences->Tabbed Browsing->Link open bahavior is the setting I think you're looking for.

Interesting - and thanks for your quick response - but my Iceweasel Preferences -> Tabs window shows:

New pages should be opened in:

O a new window
0 a new tab

which should be right, I shall have a search on 'about:config' and report back, methinks t'is probably a bug in Iceweasel 3.0.6

The only thing I can find in 'about:config' that looks appropriate is the line;

browser.search.openintab default boolean false

I have toggled to true, but I think I now have to restart Iceweasel to see if it works

Edit: That had no effect
