Hello all. This is my first question on GeeksToGo, so here goes. How can i set up FireFox so that it opens a new TAB when clicking on a link instead of a new WINDOW? This question may sound strange, but I hate having 10 windows open at once. I like it when there's only 1 open, with multiple tabs of course. Anyone have an idea how to set it this way?

When you right-click a weblink, choose the second option in the list ("Open link in new tab"), instead of the first option which opens a new window.

I can do that, yes. But is there a setting somewhere that it automatically goes into a tab? It's annoying to right-click all the time.

There are limited setting in the Tools > Options menu for tabbed browsing which you can tweak.

If you want real control over the tabbed browsing try this little extension called Tab Mix Plus. It is beta but will be released as a final version very shortly. This version is actually an enhanced version of a stable product created by someone else who could no longer spend the time maintaining it.

You should tweak the browser settings in Tools > Options as well as TMP to prevent conflict.
