    Firefox, How to:

    Just wondering, and sorry for starting another thread on Firefox but this is help I need rather than praising of Firefox.
    so here's my question: when clicking a link - say here on hexus - how do I get it to automatically open up the link in a new tab not a new window?
    is tehre something somewhere in the settings I can alter?

    You can also use the middle mouse button.

    Tabbrowser Extensions does this automatically, also you can scroll through open tabs with mwheel

    It can be a little dodgy sometimes

    If you open a link OUTSIDE firefox (and you have done Tools>Options>Advanced>Tabbed Browsing) it will open in a new tab, but if you click a link in one window (say this one) it'll try and open it in a new window, instead of a new tab.

    Just Control click the link, much simpler

    Under Window mode choose "single window mode"

    Require the tabbed browser extension as posted by Cuffz above.
