I want to open the link in new window instead of the same window and new tab. I have tried to search and also tried to find the browser. link. open_newwindow in my firefox version. But I think, it's not supported in 3.5 or 3.6 and replaced by the newwindow.restriction.

Also I want to open the link in new window instead of same window, or new tab from the web application which running in firefox only. Is there any way we can do the same?

Thanks, -Sandip

Try right clicking the link and click on Open link in new window

Thanks for your reply. But I want to open by left click not right click. So that's the problem. What we can do by Shift+ left click that should be done by only left click.

You can also try SHIFT + Left Click. That works for me as well to open a link in a new window.
