Hello,

I am wondering if there is any way to open the Library (Ctrl+Shift+B) in a new tab inside the window i have already open. If anyone is using the addon "Downloads in Tab", that's what i would like to do, but now with the Library window. For many reasons, i don't want to use Ctrl+B to open Bookmarks Toolbar, or Ctrl+H to open History.

Thank you

Hello,

Option A
Install the following add-on.

Option B
Bookmark the following URL.

chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul

Same as with any bookmark,

  • Left-clicking it will open it in the current tab.
  • Middle-clicking or Ctrl+clicking it will open it in a new tab.
  • Shift+clicking it will open it in a new window.
