How do i get firefox to not open an tabs or new windows when clicking a link

Posted

Iv tried safe mode, disabling add ons and everything. Theres no option in the menu to not open tabs when i click a link its verry annoying . If i click a google link it opens a new tab. I dont want that to get it clear with you guys is there a option in the about:config to disable that?
