I would like to open a new tab when I open a new link instead of the last page I am on falling behind. The old page should remain and new link/page open separately. Example of what I would like. I open Firefox and my homepage is yahoo. I click on a bookmarked tab to go to youtube it opens in a second tab. I want the first tab to stay open on my home page and a completely new tab open youtube. that makes two open tabs now

Hi

For bookmarks there is a specific pref on the about:config page to force opening in a new tab.

  • browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs = true

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".


There are prefs to force opening a link in a new tab, but this only works if the website specifies a target window that can possibly be diverted to a new tab. Otherwise you need to force a new tab via the context menu or by middle-clicking with the mouse wheel.

Normal Links:

  • browser.link.open_newwindow
    1:current tab; 2:new window; 3:new tab;

See also Options/Preferences -> General -> Tabs -> Open links in tabs instead of new windows

JavaScript Links:

  • browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction
    0:divert always; 1:divert never; 2:divert no features
