View Full Version : Tabs in Mozilla

Ok, so this question is probably best suited towards jkd, but we will see what happens.

I recently (like 3 days ago) decided to download mozilla. I am really enjoying it and having a great time with it. Though, I am not very good at finding out new features in it.

The question I have is: is there anyway to open a link in a new tab without having to right-click on it. Like in IE where you just shift+clicked on a link and it would open a new window, is there any way to do this but into a new tab??

Also, is there anyway to set up mozilla to where if I click on a link that opens a new window (ex. target="_blank" links) it opens in a new tab inside my existing window instead of a whole new window?

Thanks for your help everyone! ;)

If you have a scroll wheel, you can tell Mozilla to open links in a new tab via a middle click.
I do it all the time when visiting forums, branching out from active forums to new threads, etc.

I am unaware of a way to make window.open() always open a new tab though, but it wouldn't surprise me if there was one.

Duh, stupid me, right there under preferences > Tabbed Browsing is the check box for the middle click option.

I think I might look into that whole window.open() in a tab thingy some more. I will tell you if I find it.

Thanks for the help jkd, I figured you'd reply :).
