How do I stop links from opening in new tabs?


Whenever I click on links in Google, instead of going to the website it opens the site in a new tab. It does this with all links. How do I stop this? I have tried going to Tabs and unclicking "open new tabs in new window", but that didn't stop it. I am using Firefox 14.0.1 for Windows 7.
