One thing that annoys me while surfing the internet is, that some pages want to open a new window but I want only one firefox window with tabs instead. Now I found a method that seems to work.
In the firefox location bar type about:config to change the advanced settings. There you have to change two preferences:
- Change browser.link.open_newwindow to 3
- Change browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction to 0
browser.link.open_newwindow defines where links, that should open a new window, will be opened. There are three values possible:
- 2 (default) in a new windows
- 3 in a new tab
- 1 (or any other value) in the active tab/window
setting. There are too three possible values.
