I understand that when you try to open a saved html file from outside of Firefox that it opens in a new window. I also understand that you would like it to open in a new tab. In order to change your Firefox Configuration please do the following steps :

  1. In the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter. The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.
  2. Click I'll be careful, I promise! to continue to the about:config page.
  3. browser. link. open_external Integer Where to open links sent to the browser from an external application

2: Opens external links in a new window 3: Opens external links in a new tab 1 (or anything else) (default): Opens external links in current window
