When I hold Ctrl with a link to open, it opens in a new window. Before I upgraded FF these links opend in the same window on a new tab. How do I get that feature back?

I need to open many links and tabs for work, it is very frustrating th have to keep going back and forth through many windows. I was able to simply open new links on my current window in new tabs. How do I set this up in the new version of FF?

I have viewed this and selected "open new window in a new tab instead", and still the links open in new windows.

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
