How can I force a link to open in a new tab on a Mac!?

On Mac, CMD + Click only opens a link in a new tab if that link is located on that same subdomain and domain. If the link goes to another domain or subdomain it will just ignore the click!!! For example, on www.cnn.com I can CMD+Click on a number of article and they will open in a new tab. However, if the article is to a money.cnn.com or to some other website my CMD+click will be ignored. Also, would be nice to do the same in gmail. Actually, in gmail the link opens in another tab, but you are forced into that tab, so again the expected behavior of opening in another tab while remaining on the current page is being ignored.

Seems to be an ongoing issue for a few years a no one has provided a decent answer other than install a plug-in. Also, several 'about:config' options I've read about only talk about behavior when opening a new window, nothing dealing with the ignored clicks.

wampa007, you can force a link to open in a new tab with the tab options in the Preferences menu.

You can also try this add onhttps://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../?src=search

guig2, thanks for the response, but I don't believe this will help. Of the TABs options in preferences the only possibly relevant one is to force a link that would normally open in a new window to open as a tab instead. As for the plugin the two 'secret options' it talks about, I have already tried, which are basically a twist on the preference options. It also seems from the reviews of the plugin that it doesn't always work, or doesn't allow you to select which site open in a new tab, which is what I want.

Is there some way to force firefox to interpret CMD+Click as a right-click->"Open in new tab," basically the context menu always works and is the expected behavior for CMD+Click (which doesn't always do this, possible due to the page modifying the behavior).
