My preferences are set so that "When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately" is OFF. Therefore most of the time when I Cmd+click on a link, it opens on a new tab that loads in the background. This is what I want.
However, some websites break that behavior. 2 high-profile examples:
- In Google Docs, if a piece of text links to an URL, clicking on the text shows a small window with the URL. Cmd+click on that URL opens it in a new tab, and takes me to that tab.
- In Facebook Messenger, if I Cmd+click on a chat, again the chat opens in a new tab and I'm taken there. Additionally, the original tab activates that chat.
Interestingly, in both these cases, I get the right behavior if I right-click on the URL or in the chat and in the contextual menu choose "Open link in new window/tab/container tab": the new tab stays in the background.
So my question is: does anyone know of a way to always make cmd+click behave just like "Open link in new tab", no matter the website?
I'm on Firefox 115b4 on macOS, but this has been like this for years at least.
