open in new tab instead of opening new windows

It was working fine but once my inverter tripped shutting down my pc and 
when I restarted, xp did a scandisk and I found that FF3b3 was back to 
basics, the very initial settings that I had installed with, even addons 
needed to be reupdated.

Whatever. I have redone all settings.

But, while my options-tab is still saying "open new urls in new tabs 
(not in new window)" when I go to a site where javascript opens the link 
to a new window/ tab, it is not opening in a new tab as I would wish, 
but in a new window.

I have reset that option again, but not working. javascript is on for 
those sites.

I remember there was some option of single window operation of FF. 
Everything should open in a new tab in only one window and never open a 
new window. How to make that happen?

thanks.

For more options about what should open in a new tab and what should 
open in a new window, install the Tab Mix Plus extension and take a walk 
through its settings (which can be accessed either from the addons 
manager with the right extension selected, from the Tools menu, or from 
a new button in the Tabs menu of the Preferences).

Best regards,
Tony.

the above was already 3.

> browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction 0


the above was 2. I made it 0, and it worked like gem. all my new windows 
are not opening in new tabs in the same window. :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

so convenient. Thanks a peta for your to the point tip.

Opening new tabs instead of new windows
I have two installations of Firefox the I think are identical (in terms of preferences). On one installation when I click on a link in a different program it opens a new tab in the current Firefox window. On the other, it opens a new Window. I would like the second installation to work like the first. I've tried various config settings with no joy. I even tried copying the prefs.js with no change. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. -- - Barry Barry L. Wallis wrote: > I have two installations of Firefox the I think are identical (in terms > of prefere...
