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?

See Tabs Panel
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 Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
- Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
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.
- Use "Disable all add-ons" on the Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode start window to disable all extensions.
- Close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")
