How do I get Preview to open a new tab in Firefox

Sorry I am not sure where else to post this as there is no Preview category in Discussions.
Used to be a time when I clicked on a pdf link on the internet it opened up a new tab for me to view the file. Now, however it just downloads the file.
Is there a way I can use Preview to see things on my web browser like back in the old days?
thanks,
g

There's several add-ons available for Firefox that give you the ability to view PDFs while in Firefox.
Here's a link for one of them: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/636

  • When entering a new website it overrides the previous site, how can i get it to open a new tab instead

    I DON'T KNOW THAT THIS IS A PROBLEM, I JUST THOUGHT THAT IF THERE IS A WAY TO OPEN A NEW TAB EACH TIME YOU ENTER A NEW WEBSITE WITHOUT OVERRIDING THE PREVIOUS ONE. YOU WOULDN'T HAVE TO REMEMBER TO ENTER THE PLUS SIGN EACH TIME YOU WANT TO OPEN A NEW WEBSITE.

    The setting in Tools > Options > Tabs: "New pages should be opened in": "a new tab/window" is for links that specify a target window to open the link.
    That option allows to divert such links to a new tab instead of a new window.
    For links that do not specify a target use a middle-click or hold down Ctrl and left-click the link or use the right-click context menu to open the link in a new tab or window.<br />
    Left-click a JavaScript link to avoid getting a blank tab.

  • Clicking a .gif file only allows save or save as. How do you get it to open in new tab?

    Doesn't appear in Options > Applications and there doesn't seem to be a way to add the filetype.

    That image works for me and opens in a tab if I click the link on that page with the current Aurora build.
    That file is send as image/gif and Content-Disposition: inline; filename*=UTF-8''BBCode
    <br />
    Firefox shows image.php in the title bar, but if I save the image then I see BBCode.gif for the name.
    If you get the save file dialog then that might be caused by the image.php name that you see if you click the image to open it in a tab.<br />
    Do you have any action for the php file type?

  • How do i open a new tab in firefox 6.01? the + symbol has disappeared

    how do open a new tab in firefox 6.01? the + symbol has disappeared - the tab grouping stuff is not intuitive

    You can find the New Tab button showing as a '+' on the Tab bar.
    You can open the Customize window and drag the New Tab button that shows as a plus sign (+) from the Tab bar on another toolbar and it will become a regular toolbar button like the New Tab button that you have in Firefox 3 versions.
    If you can't find the New Tab button then click the "Restore Default Set" button in the Customize window.<br />
    If you want the New Tab button at the far right end of the Tab bar then place a flexible space to the left of it.
    Open the Customize window via "View > Toolbars > Customize" or via "Firefox > Options > Toolbar Layout"

    Never used it myself, so I'm not sure if you can set to about:home or not. You'll have to give it a try.

  • Opening a new tab in Firefox 16.0.1 the focus is on the address bar but then moves to the search field

    When I open a new tab in Firefox 16.0.1 the focus is on the address bar for a second or so then the focus moves to the search input field. If I start typing something the first character fills in the address bar then the rest is typed into the search field.
    How do I get the focus to remain in the address bar as per previous versions please?

    I am connected to the internet, but all tabs are closed. Now I want to open a new tab, But Firefox pops-up with "Firefox is already running, but not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system". Does anyone here know how to fix this? Thank´s, BL.
    == This happened ==
    A few times a week

    Firefox is shutting down windows I want to remain open. Example: I am done viewing one window. I click the X to shut the window and it shuts two windows. Every single time, attempt to close one windows, two windows close. Lately, I have been opening several windows with nothing but google search, just so it will shut that window and not something else I want to remain open. I could understand this if I was using tabs, but I am not. This has been going on for over two weeks. I don't like going back to history to open a window, I did not want closed in the first place. Isn't that what 'Windows' is all about? Any ideas?

    hello g.hill250, can you try to replicate this behaviour when you launch firefox in safe mode once? if not, maybe an addon is interfering here...

  • Google search results won't open automatically new tab in firefox 6.0.2

    Clicking on google search results won't open automatically new tabs in firefox 6.0.2, although it was working until today!

    Did you check the Google settings via the gear icon at the top left of the Google site to make sure that you still have selected that feature?

  • I can no longer open a new tab in firefox

    I cannot open a new tab in firefox. If I click on a link, a new tab opens, but if I use the new tab button or control t nothing happens. I used to be able to open multiple tabs, but suddenly this changed. Can you tell my why?

    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.

    I open up a new tab on firefox, and every single time I get a new search engine powered by Bing. I don't like bing first of all, second of all the random image is shows was freaking triggered massive anxiety. I don't need this crap.
    There was another post that apparently 'solved' the problem but IT DOESN'T WORK. I've tried going to about: config so don't tell me that. What can I do to fix firefox's problem.

    WELL. My wonderful girlfriend showed me how to fix it since I couldn't find a solution throughout Firefox's troubleshooting. BASICALLY. I restarted firefox. And voila it's fixed.

  • I am using a MacBook Pro and when I open a new tab in Firefox it opens to Trovi. Mozilla has a forum but solutions are all for the PC/Windows. How do I remove it?

    I am using a OSX MacBook Pro running Mavericks version 10.9.4 and using Firefox 30.0.  My Mac has recently been hijacked by a program called "Trovi".
