When I open a link in a website it opens as a new window instead of just staying on the same page
In any website, when I click on a link it opens in a new window.this even occurs in google when I click any of the results it opens in a new window instead of just staying on the same page.tabs work fine however, it is just links on websites.

Go to Firefox => Options and make sure "Open Windows in New Tabs" is checked in the tabs section.
But that means it opens in a new tab. I'm wondering if it can just stay on the same tab. for example if I type something in google and then click on the first result, why does that have to open in a new tab? can it not just open that result in the current tab?
thanks.tried that but think I messed it up cause its a wee bit confusing :) but hey, its ok ill just stick with it opening up in a new tab.thanks!
Did you check the search settings on the Google Search Settings page?
Where results open: Open search results in a new browser window.
You can set the browser.link.open_newwindow pref to 1 to open links by default in the current tab.
