Opening a link in a new tab in Firefox
How can I open a link in a new tab, not a new window.

I would like to open a link in a new tab in Firefox if I use _blank I get a new window. I was wondering if there was a code for a new tab?

Thanx,
Tim

PS
To comment on the 'Firefox is alot of hype' post, I have to strongly disagree. Adblock and Drag and Go are the two most useful features ever created for browsing. If you don't use extensions you are missing the best part of Firefox.

The answer is apparently "No" - how a new page opens is considered the user's decision, and not the page author's.

I've configured FireFox with an extension that gives me a new tab with the target="_bank" attribute. I hate having several windows AND several tabs open. This is an area of usability that I'd love to see more thought given to in the base product

See [webmasterworld.com...] for more discussion about the user end of new-tabs versus new-windows.
