Firefox Option to Open Link

Since Firefox recently upgraded to version 93 when I click on a link on the page I am browsing, Firefox opens a new Tab instead of using the current Tab. Previously Firefox opened the link on the same page which is the way I like it. Unfortunately when looking through the settings page, I don't see a way to change this back. Can you explain to me how to accomplish this?

You can check these prefs on the about:config page.

Normal Links:

  • browser.link.open_newwindow
    1:current tab; 2:new window; 3:new tab;

JavaScript Links:

  • browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction
    0:divert always; 1:divert never; 2:divert no features

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".

Hi Daryl, is this specific to a particular site or does it affect all sites? Most search sites, for example, have a setting you can choose to direct links in search results to a new window/tab or allow them to replace the results page.

As a general rule, Firefox follows the coding of the link. If the link specifies a target such as a new window or a specific window/tab it wants to re-use, Firefox will comply with that. (One exception is if you are browsing in a pinned tabs. Firefox generally uses a new tab when you click a link to a different site in a pinned tab.)

There is a hidden option to override link coding and force links into the same tab. That is something you would need to go into about:config to change. Do you recall doing that before?
