Can I get links to automatically open in a new tab just by clicking on them?
I've selected the option to: "Open new windows in new tab instead" from the options menu. For some time this seemed to open any link I clicked on in a new tab. For some reason this feature is no longer working and new links clicked on simply overwrites the current tab with the new page. I liked the feature of having links open automatically in new tabs. The option remains selected but it does not seem to be working.

Standard Firefox behavior is left-click will open a link or bookmark in the currently selected tab, over-writing whatever is in that tab. The definition for the option "Open new windows in a new tab instead" is:
Open new windows in a new tab instead: This option preference controls whether ~~red:links from other applications~~ ~~bluer from web pages which request to open them in new windows~~ are opened in a new window or a new tab in the most recent window.
