Link completion is very useful feature, except one little thing - some links there have "switch to tab" attribute, which I consider useless and harmful.

There are many site models that do not reflect position in top URI (for example, using POST params, navigating in subframes, etc.), and such links only waste visible completion popup slots.

How can I disable such "switch to tab" links/attributes ?

Ctrl+click works (openning one excess tab), but it's half measure. Safe mode doesn't stop such behavior, so it's core feature.

More about switch-to-tab:

If you try to open the same URL in more than one tab then you may have the "Switch to tab" feature preventing that.
Hold down the Alt or Shift key while an entry in the drop down list is highlighted to disable "Switch to tab" and see the URL of all entries instead.

  • Alt + Enter opens the highlighted URL in a new tab.
  • Shift + Enter opens the highlighted URL in the current tab.
  • Cursor Right copies the highlighted URL to the location bar in case you want to edit it.
