Ever since I downloaded Firefox, I have been having an issue where when i click on a link from a search engine, it automatically opens the link in a new tab. I've looked around in the settings menu, but I couldn't find any way to alter it. The closest option would be to open link in new window, but I just want to open the link in the tab that I am currently in. I have tried going into about:config although I couldn't find any setting that successfully fixed the issue. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated!

Thanks! - T

I am using Firefox 83.0 (64-bit) on Mac OS Big Sur 11.0.1.

Until recently, when I would click on a hyperlink within a pinned tab, it would open in a new tab. (To be sure, this is *without* pressing the Control key on the Mac, or without right clicking on the mouse --> open link in new tab option).

But now, hyperlinks inside pinned tabs open in the same window. This is a workflow nightmare because I am used to having links originating within my pinned Gmail window open in a new tab.

I have followed the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295, but this does not help.
