Set Firefox to open a new tab without selecting it from the context menu by two-finger tapping in Lion

In Snow Leopard, I had somehow set the two finger tap to open a new tab either from a link on a page or from my bookmarks bar, without having to select "Open a new tab" from the context menu. I recently upgraded to Lion and I can't remember how I set this feature-- or is it just not available anymore?

There is a plugin for this and you can configure it as shown in the attached screen to open all links from the web page in a new tab by just clicking on it and not having to follow the native steps

  • How do i set firefox to open a new tab with a specified web page..?

    Ive just installed firefox 5, and when i open a new tab, it open with a blank page. My previous version of firefox opened with my most visited pages as thumbnails. Can i revert to this setup, or can i set firefox 5 to open a new tab with a specified web page e.g google news...?

    No this isnt the problem. I want it to open a new tab with Google Search page and not with the big showcase of all my other pages.

  • 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.

  • I have Ver. 3.6.13 and I have reinstalled to no avail. My TABS do not work, I cannot open a new tab...either from the '+' tab or from within the 'File' menu

    Everything else seems to work fine. But I cannot open tabs. I just downloaded the latest and same version and reinstalled. That did not work.
    Thank you

    Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
    * Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
    See:
    * [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]]
    If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
    * Use "Disable all add-ons" on the [[Safe mode]] start window to disable all extensions.
    * Close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

  • How do I change the tab setting so that when I open a new tab it does not leave the current tab view?

    Up until the other day, opening a link in a new tab via right click created the new tab but did not change my view to that new tab. However, since yesterday opening any new tab changes my view from the page I was browsing on to the new tab. Although it seems minor, this seriously negatively impacts the way I browse. Is there any way to change it back? I do not see it within the settings.

    Tools > Options > Tabs - is the last preference there check-marked??

  • Does Firefox has this option (which I may not know) to click on my bookmark, link, etc. where to open a new tab without doing this right-click, it is aggravating?

    Hello, I would like to use Firefox as my default browser, but the reason I still use the old Netscape Navigator is that that clicking on my bookmarks Firefox is not opening new tab. Does Firefox has this option (which I may not know) to click on my bookmark, link, etc. where to open a new tab without doing this right-click, it is aggravating?

    Install the addon
    Open Bookmarks in New Tab 0.1.2010043001.
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/open-bookmarks-in-new-tab/
    Restart on installation.

  • New tabs are not updating the names of the sites they have loaded. When I open a new tab and load a site, the tab simply stays named "New Tab". When I open a link in a new window, it shows "Connecting..." even while its fully loaded.

    This issue can be caused by an extension that isn't working properly.

  • When I choose to open a new tab from a website, such as facebook, it always opens it in a new window. How do I change this to just opening a new tab. I tried changing the tab settings but it did not work

    When I choose to open a new tab from a website, such as facebook, it always opens it in a new window. How do I change this to just opening a new tab. I tried changing the tab settings but it did not work. I did not have the problem until I started using firefox 4.

    It is probably a JavaScript link.
    You can probably force it where you want it with a keyboard shortcut
    either "Ctrl+click" or "Ctrl+Shift+click". see
    * Firefox and other Browser Keyboard Shortcuts (Comparison Table)<br>http://dmcritchie.mvps.org/firefox/keyboard.htm
    ''Did that work?''
    Some styles that provide a warning as to the type of link:

  • I can't get Firefox to open a new tab each time I click on a link or favorite. It keeps loading onto the current tab.

    I went to Tools>Options>Tabs and entered a check mark next to the first entry, "Open New Windows in a New Tab Instead" but it still does not open a new tab each time I click on a link or one of my favorites. It used to way back in earlier versions of Firefox but hasn't for the past few iterations...am I doing something wrong or do I need to activate something else within Firefox?

    '''''"I went to Tools>Options>Tabs and entered a check mark next to the first entry, "Open New Windows in a New Tab Instead" but it still does not open a new tab each time I click on a link or one of my favorites."'''''
    That option only controls pages that would open in a new window based on the code on the website page you are visiting.
    Firefox's default is to open a link or a Bookmark in the currently selected tab.
    You have some options to have links and/or Bookmarks open in a new tab:
    *middle-click the link or Bookmark (middle-click = press the mouse scroll wheel)
    *CTRL+left-click the link or Bookmark
    *right-click the link or Bookmark and choose "Open in New Tab"
    *install one of the following and set the options to automatically open links or Bookmarks in a new tab:
