Opening a link in the same tab in Firefox


There is an anamoly in Firefox, where I can open links in new tabs or windows if I want, but certain links in websites do that already (open in a new window).

What I want to know is how I can force a webpage to open in the same tab/window even when the link originally opens when left clicked in a new window using the target keyword in HTML.

Drag the link to the tab you want or
Drag the link out of the window and back in

Have fun

Install the Greasemonkey extension, and insert the "killblank" script. It'll remove all "open in new window" links from a web page, so everything will open in the current tab unless you deliberately open a new window/tab.

I always open the pesky buggers in a new tab, mainly because I'm a tab fiend.

Right Click -> Open in New Tab

I like the script idea though, I'll try to check that out when I get time. My firefox install is so bone-stock its embarassing.
