What setting to I use to get firefox to open a separate tab when clicking on a link?
When I click on a link on a web site, a new tab does not open with that link.

Hi suego2, Firefox normally will open links in the same tab unless they are specially coded to open in a new window/tab. To open a specific link in a new tab, you can use one of these methods:
- right-click the link > Open Link in New Tab
- middle-click the link with the mouse wheel
- Ctrl+click the link
If you want links to open in a new tab with just a simple left click, you need an add-on for that. Here's one, for example:
Make sure to visit its Options page to specify whether you want ALL links in a new tab or only links to other sites.
Note that Firefox may refuse to open links in the same tab in case this is a pinned tab.
