Can I open all links externally / in default browser?
Hi! So I'm using a tool called Ice that creates special profiles for web apps (like Twitter or WhatsApp) to have them run in special browsers resembling Firefox' former site-specific browser feature.
Now when I click links in those web-apps running in special Firefox profiles, I would like to still open links in my default profile / default browser.
There is an about:config option named "browser.link.open_newwindow" which supports the following values:
- 1: Open links, that would normally open in a new window, in the current tab/window.
- 2: Open links, that would normally open in a new window, in a new window.
- 3: Open links, that would normally open in a new window, in a new tab in the current window.
Ideally, there would be an option to open those links using the system's default (like using xdg-open on Linux), which would open the link using my default browser / Firefox' default profile.
Is there some config item that I'm missing - or an add-on for Firefox that does just that (letting the system handle opening the link)? Does anyone have another idea?
Thanks for your help!
