"When I open a link in a new tab, switch.." Doesnt work correctly

I'm using Firefox 28.0 (Waterfox build)
I've verified that:
- browser.tabs.loadInBackground: False
- browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground: True
- "When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately" is enabled in the UI.
It seems only some websites actually switch to the new tab. Also, sometimes, this feature will stop working all together; requiring me to toggle the Firefox UI setting and/or restart firefox.

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

  • "When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately" option has no effect on command+clicking on links.

    Whether this option is ticked or un-ticked, command+clicking a link will open the link in a new tab and immediately switch to it.
    Is it possible to change this behavior so that command+clicking on a link will open the link in a new tab in the background?

    Did you try to close and restart Firefox after toggling this setting?
    Does holding down the Shift key in addition (i.e. Command + Shift and a left-click) has any effect?

  • Sometimes when I open a link in a new tab and then switch to the tab, the address bar clears and the website won't open.

    Sometimes when I open a link in a new tab and then switch to the tab, the address bar clears and I'll have to re open the tab and hope that doesn't happen again. Sometimes this happens again and again. Most of the times if I just open the link in a new tab and don't switch to it, this won't happen. But as I switch too the tab, the text would disappear and the link wouldn't open.

    Middle mosue button don't open a link on a new tab, the button works for scrolling etc. Thats teh problem, seem like I'm the only with the problem...

    I had the same problem. If you're running Greasemonkey, you need to update it. There's a conflict between Greasemonkey 0.9.10 and Tab Mix Plus on Firefox 6.0.2. Until the add-ons site approves Greasemonkey 0.9.11, you'll have to install it manually.

  • When I open a link in a new tab, firefox switches to the new tab

    When I open a link and instruct to open in a new tab , it switches me to that tab !
    I have under tools>options>tabs>
    unchecked "switch to new tab immediately"
    And it still switches to the new tab, this is frustrating...

    I fixed it by disabling the Divx add-ons in Firefox. Hope that helps you

  • When I open a link in a new tab, most of the time it opens to the bottom of the page, and I have to scroll back up to the top or hit the Home key.

    When reading a web page, I will right-click on a link and select 'open link in new tab' and most of the time it will open the new page right at the bottom. I then have to scroll up with the mouse or hit the 'home' button on my keyboard to get back to the top of the page. I've already looked at the tab settings in the options menu, and there's nothing there that seems to apply.

  • When I open a link in a new tab reduces the size of the font on the current page.

    The font is shrinked only on the current page (just like ctrl+wheemouse down). Happens if is ctrl+click or use the mouse middle button. Can you please advise how to fix this? Setting minimal font doesnt work. Thank you for your help.''

    Sounds like a problem with the mouse driver. You can check the settings in Control Panel > Mouse. Also make sure that you have the latest updates of all drivers.

  • Unnecessary alert when opening a link in a new tab

    Sometimes when I open a link in a new tab firefox opens it properly but alerts me with "Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (bar) isn't associated with any program."

  • Using Firefox 4.0 Beta 4. When I open a link in a new window, the web address does not show in the location bar. Why?

    When I open a web page link in "a new window" the link opens, but the web page information does not appear in the location bar. It is blank. If I open the link in a new tab, there is ho problem.
    Further, if a open a link from the tab without a location in a new tab on the same window and then go back to the original tab, the location bar fills with the web address.
    Have done this starting in several locations, so it not location dependent.

    That behaviour is likely top be caused by an add-on, and in your case the likely culprit is IE Tab 2, the various versions of IE Tab have caused problems with Firefox 4 beta including issues with the location bar not being updated.
    You can test to see if IE Tab 2 is causing your problem by disabling it and then seeing if the location bar in a new window shows the address. If it is not that add-on causing the problem, see [[troubleshooting extensions and themes]].
    For info, the IE Tab Plus add-on has been updated recently to improve compatibility with Firefox 4 beta, you may want to try that one instead. The latest version is available from http://coralietab.mozdev.org/installation.html

  • 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.

  • When I'm on a page with many links it used to highlight or underline the link I was looking at ... so when it opened the link in a new window, I could look back and not lose my place

    It sounds like you have chosen a publishing template rather than a word processing template. There are two basic modes in MS Word: word processing and publishing layout. Word processing mode (and all word processing templates) have a continuous text box in the page for writing text. The publishing layout mode (and publishing templates) are documents that have text boxes placed for articles, titles, pictures, etc. Be sure to choose the word document template and you’ll get what you expect. Do not choose the word publishing document.

    I was having the same problem and was looking for solutions when I came across this posting. Disabling GoodSearch solved the problem for me. Hopefully GoodSearch will update soon and resolve the issue permanently so I can use it again.
