Thread: Firefox... keeps opening new tabs

  1. #1

    Firefox... keeps opening new tabs

    When I click on a link that goes to a different domain than the site I am on, it opens a new tab... can be very annoying when viewing a site like myspace that has about every other page at a new domain... Anyone know how to turn this off??

    Cheers.

    sticky keys on maybe?

    shiift + click opens new tabs, so it might be somethign with the shift key

    There are tab options in the preferences that control this, and I think an extension which can give you even more control (dont have a link handy)

    Don't click links with your scroll wheel. I don't think its defualted to click so there may be something wrong.

    'Tab Mix Plus' and 'Tabbed Browser Preferences' are two of them.

    I've never experienced this "new domain in a new tab" thing. Perhaps you mean links that open in a new window open in a new tab instead? In which case, yea it can be turned off somewhere.

    this has nothing to do with the topic. only the person that created the thread can make a poll

    Does it open in new tab or new window? If it's in new window, as it is the default setting, hit about:config in the url bar, then change the value of browser.link.open_newwindow from 2 to 1. If it's in new tab, still in about:config, filter the listing by "tab" and look at the settings that you have.

    it opens new tabs. and i am not scroll wheel clicking, shift clicking or anything else... if you click on a link that goes from like kirupa.com to forums.kirupa.com it will open a new tab for the link.

    I heard Opera 9 just came out and it's pretty nifty, wink wink nudge nudge.

    looks better in lowercase
    type
    Code:
    about:config
    In the address bar and filter for browser.tabs - have a look and see if that comes up with anything.
