I have just stumbled across this warning on tomcoyote's site. I'll let AplusWebMaster do the talking, since he explains it very well:

http://forums.tomcoy...showtopic=39247



From what I can tell, along with not having any other windows/tabs open when using a trusted site, that you should goto: tools > options > advanced > tabbed browsing > and make sure "open links from other applications in:" is not clicked on "a new window". I hope I'm understanding this correct ;) ;)

Problem is, I set it to open links in: "a new tab in the most recent window", but it refuses to change and continues to open links in a new window! :tazz: What's going wrong?

Thanks Rogue for the reply. :tazz: I've sat down this evening and studied this flaw a little more, and in one of the posts in this thread at Mozillas forums, there's this link to an excellent page which outlines a solution, which extensions are recommended, and where to dl them.

I'm going to try the extension now, and I'll report back if it works using secunias test:

Well, here's the update so far...

I tried out an extension, which was supposed to be lighter and would just do what was necessary in this situation and little else, called TabMix. But (and I'm not exactly sure how it happened) it caused me to lose all connection to the internet. So, once I got my connection back, I uninstalled that one and tried Tabbrowser Preferences from here, and it seems to pass the secunia test! ;)

Happy Daze. :tazz:
