Als ik voorheen een nieuw tabblad in Firefox wilde openen, deed ik dat door met de rechtermuisknop te klikken op datgene wat ik wilde openen, om vervolgens de 2e optie (koppeling openen in nieuw tabblad) aan te klikken. Maar in de vernieuwde versie van Firefox is dit omgedraaid, de 2e optie is nu 'koppeling openen in nieuw venster'. Echt heel irritant, en ik kan het niet afleren want dan krijg ik in andere programma's nieuwe vensters in plaats van tabbladen geopend. Iemand hetzelfde probleem? En hoe kan ik dit veranderen?

You can middle click a link to open the link in a new tab.

You can use the Menu Editor extension to swap the two context menu entries.

You can also do this with code in userChrome.css

Add this code to userChrome.css below the @namespace line.

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

#contentAreaContextMenu > * { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2; }
#context-openlink { -moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 !important; }
