How to control+left click a link to open it in a new tab?

I want to be able to hold control while I click on a link to open it in a new tab. This works on chrome so why not on Firefox?

A Ctrl and left-click should work in Firefox as well.<br />
You can also middle-click a link to open a link in a new tab.

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 or otherwise make changes.

  • When I click a link to open the page in new tab, it open the new page beside my page.

    After I update FireFox to version 3.6.8, I could not open the new page in the last tab, it always opens the new page in beside the tab.
    Mmm…I could not make sure the new page or new tab I said is the same with you…?? (I use Chinese version so that I don’t know if it’s the same or not…)
    A window could open several pages with different tabs, and I could click different tab to different page, right?
    If I right clicked a link to open the page to “new tab” in the same window, the new tab opened in the last tab of my window.
    But after I update FireFox to version 3.6.8 and I click a link to open the page to “new tab” in the same windoe, the new tab will open beside my page. (Mmm…Open on right of my page.)
    I would like the “new tab” open to the last tab in my window, not “beside” the tab I used. How could I change the setting??)

  • I right click a link to open it in a new tab and it doesn't load the web page.

    In firefox 4 I right click a link and go to open in new tab but it doesnt load the link it loads a Bing search instead. This is very frustrating, how can i fix this?
    And why can't i access my add-ons? When i click add-ons it just opens a new tab.

    Sounds like this bug:

  • When I click a link to open it in a new tab, firefox jumps to another tab that is already opened.

    I have my options set to open new windows as a new tab. But when I do, rather than staying in the tab I'm in (even though I have options set to stay there not go to the new tab immediately) Firefox sends me to ANOTHER Tab that is already opened (neither the current one nor the newly opened one).

  • Why is it that sometimes when I use my middle mouse button to click on a link to open it in a new tab I will have it open it in an entirely new instance of Firefox instead of a new tab?

    Occasionally when I click on a link with my middle mouse button, instead of opening the page in a new tab, it will open a new instance of Firefox.
    I've looked through some of the settings and I wasn't able to find anything. It really gets to be bothersome at times because I prefer things to be in tabs instead of a new browser.

    It's not specific sites. I can middle-click on the same link 50 times and it will open it in a new tab 45 times and 5 of those times, it will randomly open it in an entirely new window. I don't know what's causing this.
    It happens so randomly that I don't know how to pin-point what it could be.

  • Is there an add-on that features an arrow when you hover over a bookmark link and opens it in a new tab, like IE?

    In the IE 7+ browser, the Favorites pane has a feature that when you hover over a link, a blue arrow displays which, when clicked, opens that link in a new tab. Is there a Firefox add-on that has this feature?

    Middle-click or {Ctrl + Click} a bookmark to have it open in a new Tab.

  • How to open navigation item in new tab?

    Hello
    Is it possible to open a navigation item in a new tab?
    for example, when a user enters in MII and in the menu has several links, is it possible, when clicking in a link, to open it  in a new tab?
    i know it is possible to open in a new window or in home page or on top... but what about tab?
    Best regards.
    Edited by: Ricardo Alves on Dec 4, 2009 5:53 PM

    Your solution will be client setting dependent.  The home page navigation and tab options for opening in the frame or new window are merely setting the href target in the home page html when the screen is rendered by the personalization service.  As far as I know the tab behavior new to IE in version 7, and the tab behavior in other browsers like Mozilla/Firefox are both managed at the application level and will be client PC bound.  The home page process just uses target="_blank" for opening links in a new window.  I don't know if there is a browser neutral setting for something like target="_newtab", but it doesn't appear to be the case:  http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/types.html#h-6.16
    If something like this does creep into the standard then it would make a nice feature enhancement request for 3 radio button options when defining a link in the navigation editor.

    HOW TO cache user clicks on links with attributes such as "_blank" in Adobe AIR with JS or MXML or AS3 for creating new costume browser window (AIR) ?

    >This feature is indeed new to 8.5.
    Can you explain a bit more on what is possible in version 8.5? How easy it is to attach events to different sections of the 3D model? How easy it is to handle such events? I assume the events will fire even if the user rotates the 3D model via the camera control, right? Any limitations on the 3D model or what types of events are supported? If you have LV documentation describing this feature then that would be *very* helpful!
    Thanks for your reply

  • Why does ctrl+Left click a link open a new window? It should open a new tab in the current window.

    When I try to Ctrl+Left click to open a link in a new tab, it will open it in a new window instead. Then while in the new window if I Ctrl+Left click a link it will open a new tab in the second window. If I then go back to the first Firefox window and Ctrl+Left click a link the second firefox window will pop up and the new tab will be created there. Why won't the Ctrl+Left click work when only one window is open?

    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

  • Every time I click a link, it opens in a new tab instead of the existing one.

    Whenever I left click on any link, Firefox opens the link in a new tab. Previously it would only open a link in a new tab if I either middle clicked, or right clicked and specifically selected 'Open Link in New Tab.'

    This may be because the site is instructing the browser to open them in a new tab (I know, it's a big usability issue, but the web is still young...). Can you try it on other browsers and see what happens? If the same happens, yes, it's probably the site that's telling the browser to open the link in another tab.
    If you want to eliminate that behavior, and be in full control of where the links open (middle click to open in new tab, left click to open in the same tab - as it ''should'' be), I suggest you install an extension like [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/1122/ Tab Mix Plus], which, among other things (many things, it's an absolutely phenomenal extension) will let you configure "links that open in a new window" to open on the current tab.

  • I had about 17 tabs open on my browser. I clicked a link to open another one and when the tab opened the other tabs disappeared. What happened here?

    I had 17 tabs open. When I clicked a link to open a new tab all the other tabs disappeared. I thought a new window had been opened instead, but this is not the case there is only one window open on my mozilla browser. If I try to close the window I get a message that says there are 26 tabs opened, I opened 9 more tabs. Can anybody tell me what is going on here or how I might figure this out?
    Also, when I close a tab and try to reopen the tab using the right click menu, the 'undo closed tab' menu is disabled. What happened here? Can anybody tell me how to re-enable it?

    I've seen some occasional glitches with windows losing the toolbar area, but not one that disturbing.
    If you click and drag down on the 18th tab enough to tear it off into a new window (and possibly the same for the other newer tabs you opened), can you get the 17 tabs to re-appear in the first window? If not, I'm not sure there is a way to mend the window. If it's NOT a private browsing session, you might have to use Firefox > Exit (or File > Exit) and restore your session to get a working window. That won't work with a private window...
    As a backstop, you might also right-click a tab in the window > Bookmark All Tabs before ending your session. (Because session cookies and other transient data are not preserved when you reload bookmarks, this isn't as effective as restoring a session. On the other hand, bookmark storage is less fragile than session data storage.)
    Regarding Undo Close Tab, are the closed tabs listed on the History menu under Recently Closed Tabs? If so, that context menu item definitely should be enabled.
