How can I click a link to open a new tab without automatically switching to the new tab?

I use Ixquick as my search engine. When the search result comes up, every time I click a link, Firefox creates a new tab and changes the focus from the search results page to the page for the link I clicked.
I want to have a new tab created , but I want to stay on the search results page to be able to continue clicking other tabs of interest.
I'm new to Foxfire and this functionality was very useful to me when I used Internet Explorer.
Any help will be appreciated.

Hi Kathy
You can start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode|Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
*Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window.

  • How can I sync apps from my iTunes on Macbook Air without syncing apps from the iPad 2 to my Macbook Air?

    How can I sync apps from my iTunes on Macbook Air without syncing apps from the iPad 2 to my Macbook Air? (As my Macbook Air is only 64GB and my iPad is 64GB and that my Macbook Air only has 40 GB left...) Or is there no other way but to sync apps from iTunes to iPad without syncing apps from iPad to iTunes(it says Backing Up , then it says Converting files to iTunes, then it shows the name of the app on the bottom...)

    Yes, sign in with the same Apple ID as your stolen one in the new iPod Touch.

    How can I groupe several PDF's together in 1 file - without re-scanning all the documents??

    Yes, as Bernd suggested you can download Acrobat XI 30 day trial from Adobe.com http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=acrobat_pro&loc=en (Windows) to check if that meets your requirements.

  • Please... how can I delete that stupid VIP mailbox that was forced onto my phone with the new software of IO6?

    Please... how can I delete that stupid VIP mailbox that was forced onto my phone with the new software of IO6?

    I had started all this with a question back in September. Thanks for the follow up. I have learned to live with the big VIP that simply takes up space on my phone. Oh well, the darn first world problems we have...
    On another fun note, my movie recommendation of the week is Flight. I liked it, but I only add that so I can add something positive after starting all this with a negative frustrated venting.

  • I have an Ipod1 with 3G and an unlimited ATT plan.  I want to get an Ipad2 - can I swap SIM cards so that my unlimited service will automatically transfer to the new unit?

    I have an Ipod1 with 3G and an unlimited ATT plan.  I want to get an Ipad2 - can I swap SIM cards so that my unlimited service will automatically transfer to the new unit?

    You don't actually swap the SIM card. For some reason, AT&T doesn't like you to do it that way.
    Go to:
    www.att.com/ipadlanding
    edit payment information link...then update the following two fields:
    IMEI:
    ICCID:
    You get this info from the iPad (1 or 2) select 'Settings' then 'General' then 'About'...
    The IMEI and ICCID info is on that screen. No need to swap the SIM cards. This process outlined above transfers service instantly and does NOT change the plan type, billing, user info, or days remaining. Basically anytime an ATT customer wants to move a data plan the ATT iPad web page is all you need. No phone call!
    It took me about 3 minutes and worked perfectly.

  • How can I force a link to open in a new tab on a Mac!?

    On Mac, CMD + Click only opens a link in a new tab if that link is located on that same subdomain and domain. If the link goes to another domain or subdomain it will just ignore the click!!!
    For example, on www.cnn.com I can CMD+Click on a number of article and they will open in a new tab. However, if the article is to a money.cnn.com or to some other website my CMD+click will be ignored.
    Also, would be nice to do the same in gmail. Actually, in gmail the link opens in another tab, but you are forced into that tab, so again the expected behavior of opening in another tab while remaining on the current page is being ignored.
    Seems to be an ongoing issue for a few years a no one has provided a decent answer other than install a plug-in. Also, several 'about:config' options I've read about only talk about behavior when opening a new window, nothing dealing with the ignored clicks.

    guig2, thanks for the response, but I don't believe this will help. Of the TABs options in preferences the only possibly relevant one is to force a link that would normally open in a new window to open as a tab instead.
    As for the plugin the two 'secret options' it talks about, I have already tried, which are basically a twist on the preference options.
    It also seems from the reviews of the plugin that it doesn't always work, or doesn't allow you to select which site open in a new tab, which is what I want.
    Is there some way to force firefox to interpret CMD+Click as a right-click->"Open in new tab," basically the context menu always works and is the expected behavior for CMD+Click (which doesn't always do this, possible due to the page modifying the behavior).

  • How can I get one link to open two different PDFs?

    Even though I'm only the hardware support guy where I work, I've been asked to maintain the web site. The latest request is that they want to get one link to open two PDFs. I know you can do something like that with web pages, but I'm not sure if you can do the same with PDFs. I only know the basics of Dreamweaver, so, if it can be done, please explain it to me like I'm a 5-year-old. However, I'm not afraid of code. Thanks, in advance, for any assistance.

    Hi
    You can do this by using the javascript onClick event to load the 2 pdf's, but if I was to see such action when clicking a link I would suspect that it was trying to open multiple pages, (as per spam sites) and immediately close the tabs/windows and never visit the site again.
    If you do require two pdf's then merge both pdf files into one, and link to the single file as normal.

  • How can I set web links to open in a new window?

    I'm using the links tool in Acrobat 5.05 to create links in my pdf to other websites, not documents. When the pdf is posted online, I need those links to open in a new window. Now they open in the same window, which subjects the viewer to using the back button to return to the originating pdf and waiting for it to completely reload. This is a sizeable pdf file, making that very time consuming. I tried Un-checking the option about "Open Cross Document Links in Same Window" but tests indicated that it made no difference.
    If you need more info to clarify my question, please just ask. Any suggestions in regard to solving this will be appreciated.
    My apologies if a similar question has already been asked/answered. I did not find reference to it in my search.
    Thank you.

    You can use JavaScript for this. For example:
    app.launchURL("http://www.adobe.com", true);
    More information is in the Acrobat JavaScript reference. Note that this method is new to Acrobat 7. You can still use Acrobat 5 to create the JavaScript, but it won't work for versions less than 7, or for most users of non-Adobe PDF viewers. If you go this route, you should add some code that checks the version of Acrobat (Reader), and only execute the above code if 7 or above.

  • How can I force mailto: links to open my webmail client in a new tab?

    I have configured Firefox 5 to use my Hotmail account as the default client when clicking 'mailto:' links. I would like to know if it is possible to have my webmail client open in a new tab by default when composing a message, so as not to navigate away from the page I was viewing.

    Open a new tab. In the address bar type; '''''About:Config''''' and press
    enter. If you get a page that warns you about continuing, press the
    '''''I will be careful''''' button. In the search bar, type; '''''Newtab'''''.
    Look for; '''''Browser.newtab.url'''''. Right click and select '''''Modify'''''.
    Type; '''''About:home''''' (or what ever page you want) and press
    enter. That should do it.

  • How can I move my bookmarks from one laptop to another without losing those on the destination laptop?

    I have an older laptop that has a lot of bookmarks that I want to save onto a newer laptop. I've been told that I can move them easily enough, but that that procedure will wipe out the bookmarks on the destination laptop. How can I avoid that?

    Your contacts should be on your computer.
    You should have been syncing them with your computer from day one.
    have you failed to do this?

  • Turned Match off and songs that had been deleted from my hard drive (but NOT deleted from my library) disappeared - how can I get those songs to reappear in my library without manually re-adding the matched files that I had deleted from my hard drive?

    I was trying to turn off iTunes Match on my iPhone and first turned Match off on my MacBook rather than on my iPhone (which was wrong, I should have just turned it off on the iPhone).  I had ~28,000 songs in my library when I turned off iTunes Match; I had deleted ~8,000 of those files from my laptop (which I backed up on a portable hard disk) but I left the deleted files in my library, so that I could play them through iTunes Match.  One of the benefits of Match, right?  Saving hard drive space.  So I turned off iTunes Match on my MacBook thinking that was how to turn it off on the iPhone (it wasn't), and when I turned Match back on, those ~8,000 songs were not in my library.  I tried to update Match several times but can't seem to get the songs back.  I know they are still in the cloud somewhere though, because if Match restarted then it would match/upload all of my remaining ~20,000 songs - but it hasn't, I still have thousands of "exceeded limit" songs.  Anyone know how I can get those songs back?

    "One of the benefits of Match, right?  Saving hard drive space."
    I would not use iTunes Match as a backup. There are too many bugs and I don't think that's what they intended it to be anyway. The main advantage of using it is to make your music available on OTHER devices, not to replace the music on your original computer.
