After following the link.o instructions, firefox is still loading everything in new window.

more options

I followed these instructions and still am having problems:

(A) browser.link.open_newwindow - for links in Firefox tabs

3 = divert new window to a new tab (default) 2 = allow link to open a new window 1 = force new window into same tab

(B) browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction - for links in Firefox tabs

0 = apply the setting under (A) to ALL new windows (even script windows) 2 = apply the setting under (A) to normal windows, but NOT to script windows with features (default) 1 = override the setting under (A) and always use new windows

(C) browser.link.open_newwindow.override.external - for links in other programs

-1 = apply the setting under (A) to external links (default) 3 = open external links in a new tab in the last active window 2 = open external links in a new window 1 = open external links in the last active tab replacing the current page

Hi Mfrank7, do you mean a separate new window instead of a tab in the current or last active window?

What are the current settings for those preferences:

(A) browser.link.open_newwindow - for links in Firefox tabs

If this is bolded and "user set" to some value other than 3, you can restore the default value using either:

  • right-click (or if no right-mouse button, Ctrl+click) > Reset
  • double-click, change to 3, click OK

(B) browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction - for links in Firefox tabs

Did you modify this to 0 ?

(C) browser.link.open_newwindow.override.external - for links in other programs

Does this have its default value of -1 ?
