Can Firefox open a new tab when I click on a bookmark?

Can I get Firefox 5.01 to open bookmarks in a new tab when I click on them?

'''Keyboard shortcut is built into Firefox''' there is no need for an extension, but you will have to make a modification perhaps to a configuration variable.
set the following configuration variable
browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground
to the same value as you have for
browser.tabs.loadInBackground
Opening links in the background with Ctrl+Shift+click or foreground with Ctrl+click
or the other way around is controlled by Tools > Options Tabs > when I open a link in a new tab switch to it immediately.
'''More information on configuration variables''' available in
[http://kb.mozillazine.org/About:config_entries about:config entries] and for users not familiar with the process there is [http://kb.mozillazine.org/About:config about:config] (How to change).

  • I can only open a new tab by right clicking on an item in an already open tab and selecting open in new tab

    I can only open a new tab by right clicking on an item in an already open tab and selecting open in new tab. Nothing else works e.g. File, New Tab, or clicking on the New Tab to the right of the last tab.

    Uninstall the '''''Ask Toolbar'''''. It can cause that problem.

  • All of a sudden I can no longer open a new tab using either the icon on the tab bar, the keyboard short cut or the File menu option. I can open a new tab ONLY by clicking on a bookmark or link.

  • How do I stop Firefox from opening a new tab when I click a link or navigation button (such as "home") instead of redirecting using the currently open tab?

    Any time I click on a link within a page, such as the "home" link in Facebook, or the various links on the Mozilla page that I needed to follow to get to this screen, Firefox opens a new tab instead of redirecting using the tab I'm on. Also, Firefox doesn't go to the new tab, it just opens it. So if I want to actually go to the page I've just clicked on, I have to then also find and click on the new tab that just opened.

    Hello,
    In safe mode link still open in new tabs?
    *[http://mzl.la/MwuO4X Firefox in safe mode]
    Go to '''about:config''' and search for:
    *'''browser.tabs.loadInBackground''' change its value to '''false'''.
    If in safe mode the links still open in new tabs try go to '''about:config''' and search for:
    *'''browser.link.open_newwindow''' change its value to '''3'''.

  • My Firefox will no longer open a new tab when i click on it or when i use the shortcut.

    I have tried looking through all the setting that it gave me and i can not find when it wont let me open a new tab. All the settings i have are the default settings and before it happened i hadn't even been into the setting so its not like i was messing with them and then it messed up it just happened one time. I do not have any viruses or anything because i use 3 different virus scans and they say my computer its clean. Also my virus scanning programs are up to date i updated them today.

    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")

  • I cannot open a new tab when I click on the + to add a new tab so I can't have multiple tabs open. How do I fix this problem?

    On my home page, I have it up and I want to open a new tab. When I click to open a new tab, nothing happens. How can this be fixed?

    Hello lsmalls787, '''try Firefox Safe Mode''' to see if the problem goes away. [[Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode|Firefox Safe Mode]] is a troubleshooting mode that turns off some settings, disables most add-ons (extensions and themes).
    If Firefox is open, you can restart in Firefox Safe Mode from the Help menu:
    *In Firefox 29.0 and above, click the menu button [[Image:New Fx Menu]], click Help [[Image:Help-29]] and select ''Restart with Add-ons Disabled''.
    If Firefox is not running, you can start Firefox in Safe Mode as follows:
    * On Windows: Hold the '''Shift''' key when you open the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
    When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "Start in Safe Mode".<br>
    [[Image:Safe Mode Fx 15 - Win]]
    '''''If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode''''', your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to figure out which one. Please follow the [[Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems]] article to find the cause.
    ''To exit Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before opening Firefox for normal use again.''

  • Firefox does not open a new tab when you click the plus sign button which is actually a shortcut for opening a new tab. You have to open a new firefox window in order to get a new tab. Please help. Thanks.

    I didn't have this problem before with Firefox. My kids must have pressed something or clicked on something that's the open new tab button does not function anymore. No matter how you click it, it doesn't open a new tab. Even if you click on file, then go to new tab, it still doesn't open a new tab. You have to open a new firefox window in order to do multiple browsing.
    Hope you can help resolve this problem.
    Sincerely,

    Uninstall the Ask toolbar and it should work again. There is a compatibility issue with the Ask toolbar and Firefox that prevents new tabs from being opened. Checking your list of add-ons, the MyPlayCity toolbar is a version of the Ask toolbar.
    There are a couple of places to check for the Ask toolbar:
    * Check the Windows Control panel for the Ask Toolbar - http://about.ask.com/apn/toolbar/docs/default/faq/en/ff/index.html#na4
    * Also check your list of extensions, you may be able to uninstall it from there - https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Uninstalling+add-ons

  • After opening a new tab, when I click on my home page (the house icon), it duplicates and opens a second window...it's never done this before?

    I just installed Firefox on a new laptop. Google is my home page. My opening tab is always Google. But, when I open a New Tab, it doesn't open in Google. So, I've always clicked on the house icon to take me straight to Google. Now when I do, TWO tabs open in Google. (it duplicates)

    I tried all of the above, I've reinstalled Firefox and I've checked if value set to 3 in browser.link.open_newwindow which it is, but the problem still happens.
    Regarding what you say re what is written in the article Tab preferences and settings, I understand what this means. However I am using FireFox in my work. I have a CRM where I constantly click on a button that automatically opens my order system on a new tab, or email templates in a new tab etc. The tab opens next to the tab I am currently on. However ever since I was prompted to Refresh Firefox earlier, it now opens these in a new window. Therefore the size of these pages has nothing to do with it, as this was not a problem before.
    This is irritating, as no I have to go from one window to another, and where I have multiple tabs open it is making my life difficult.
    Not happy!

  • How can i change the tab bar from opening a new tab when single clicked to open one only when double clicked?

    Out of habbit, i double click the tab bar and it opens 1 tab. however in the new beta, it opens 2.
    Is there anyway to change this so single clicks dont open new tabs on the tab bar?

    I don't have multiple tab bars and haven't installed anything to try and get them.
    I re-read what I wrote earlier and realised it's not worded clearly when I said: If I have more than a single tab bar of tabs open
    I meant: When I have so many tabs open that they won't all fit into the tab bar at once

  • I can't open a new tab when I right click the refresh button; same goes when I click on History and right click a past site. How do I fix it?

    It happened after Mozilla Firefox's plugin crashed. Whenever I tried right clicking the refresh button or a page in History, it no longer prompted me to "open in a new page." Instead, the box showing the menu bar, navigation bar, etc. showed up. How do I change it back?
