I will have page open in the browser and when I click on one particular bookmark it always opens in the same browser but as a second page on the left side of the page. How do I stop this from happening--it is apage that I need to visit often for business and it is very restricting.

Chosen solution

Opening in the side bar is the default for bookmarks that are created via a link or button on a website.

You can check the Properties of a bookmark via the right-click context menu in the side bar (Ctrl+B; Cmd+B on Mac).

In the Bookmarks Manager (Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks) you can click the More button in the Details pane at the bottom right.

Make sure that "Load this bookmark in the side bar" is not selected.
