Firefox: Open Popup Windows in New Tab

📅 2011-Mar-25 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

I hate it when clicking certain links pops open a new window. It is irritating and it also takes away the focus from the current window.

To stop this behaviour and open all popup windows in a new tab, go to about: config and set browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction to 0. More info on this setting can be found here.

Tried with: Firefox 4.0 on Windows 7
