Open Target="_blank" links in new TAB instead of new window

I would like an option to open target ="_blank" links in a new tab
automatically.

It would make surfing more clear and i think it would be functional.

what do you think?

you can block _blank, but they will open in same window or change mouse 
cursor, sou you can use middle button. Visit: http://texturizer.net/

Perhaps http://texturizer.net/firebird might be more useful ;)

On http://www.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html there is a sort of 
workaround about 1/3 down the page. Just search the page for _blank. Then go 
vote for the mentioned bugs.

"Move tab to new window" is wanted; "Open in new window" is faulty.

Comments: Right now, tabs in FF 3.5.2 have "Open in new window". What they need is "Move tab to new window". The problem? The page is fully reloaded from scratch. Not all pages can be reloaded.

"Open new windows in a new tab instead" is a poor choice
Name: Ken Product: Shiretoko Summary: "Open new windows in a new tab instead" is a poor choice Comments: This preference is defined as "whether links from other applications or 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". But I'm not sure why I'd want these two completely different use cases lumped together. The whole point of tabbed windows is to group together similar sets of pages. Links from web pages, therefore, should open in the same window as a new tab. But l...

Wish Firebird v0.7: Links opened in a new Tab instead of a new Window [if target='_blank']
Hi, The more I use Firebird, the more I like it! Just suggesting a new option: Some links are defined to be opened in a new window by e.g. <a href='test.html' target='_blank'>test</a> It might be very useful to define a general option whether these links should be opened in a new window - or in a new tab. As I like Firebird's tab feature very much, I could use this functionality very much. I have not found an option like this in the browser v0.7 at the moment. What do you think?
