The issue I am dealing with is that I want Firefox to open all links in a new tab but not to switch to them automatically. I have checked all the settings in the Tools >> Options >> Tab menu and I have them all checked except for the last two. I am on Firefox version 36.0.1 and I have refreshed Firefox several times and have deleted and recreated a new profile. Is there a setting somewhere that I'm missing or are there some settings in the About:Config that can be changed to make this happen?

Open Link in New Tab.

Tab Mix Plus.

Hope that works for you.

Firefox doesn't have a built-in feature to divert ALL links to a new tab, only the choice of diverting links coded to open in a new window to a new tab instead.

What you are describing in your Tab Options is correct for the built-in feature. Some sites that use scripts instead of normal links might not be handled correctly, so if this is site-specific, we could look at the site and give you suggestions for workarounds.

I think you will need an add-on to handle other links. Hopefully one of the ones in the earlier post will help: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1052093#answer-704101

There are these prefs, accessible via the about:config page, to control the focus if you click a link.

  • browser.tabs.loadInBackground (normal links)
  • browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground (javascript)
