Lolu chungechunge lwabekwa kunqolobane. Uyacelwa ubuze umbuzo omusha uma udinga usizo.

Why can't i drag text/link to the tab bar and have it open a new tab?

Kuphostiwe

Whenever i drag highlighted text, drag a URL, or drag a link to an image/video to the tab bar nothing happens. Previously FF would open this as a new tab, but i can't seem to find out what is wrong.

I have tried many extensions and add-ons, but none are compatible with FF 11. I recently uninstalled and reinstalled FF. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you see an entry in the right-click context menu to open such a link in a new tab?

That should work if the link is a fully qualified link with a protocol.

Waste of time right-clicking and clicking. As a recent semi-convert from Google Chrome, this is a huge annoyance.

jimbo1qaz, what does Chrome do that you want Firefox to do? Please be specific. By the way, to open a link in a new tab, you can hold the Ctrl key when clicking. (Shift-click opens the link in a new window.)

You can use "Open Link in New Tab" in the right-click context menu to open a fully qualified selected text link that has a protocol in a new tab, so it won't work with text links that do not have a protocol.

Drag text to tab bar: search it instead of trying to access nonexistent url

i'm having the same problem, it used to work before i guess or maybe i'm just confusing it with Chrome, anyway, he's talking about dragging a simple text (not an URL), in Chrome you can drag a text to a new tab and Google(or your default search engine) gives you the search results of that text in that new tab. i tried intalling QuickDrag but still nothing.

Sometimes it works, sometimes it randomly opens a nonexistent .com-less url or appends .com for no reason. Quickdrag isn't what I'm looking for...

Nothing happens when I drag text and drop it on a tab or the new tab button. Do you need to wait for the tab to display and then drop it on the address bar?

Two alternatives might be:

(1) Right-click selected text, then choose Search Google for... to open a search in a new tab

(2) Hold the Alt key while dragging and dropping the selected text onto the search box/search bar to open a search in a new tab
