I wanted to make it so that when a link opened a new window, it would instead open a new tab. So I searched in about:config, and changed browser.tabs.opentabfor.windowopen to true, because by its name this sounds like it is just what I'm looking for. But it didn't work. So I closed FF and reopened, and still didn't work.
Can anyone help?
Thanks for your time
How ever, I can get version 1.1.1 from addons.update.mozilla.org, or version 1.2.2 from [pryan.org...]
For now I'm downloading the old version from mozilla.org because I don't trust the other source. What do you think? Is there even such thing as tabbrowser preferences version 1.2.2?
It's been argued that the Tab Browser Extension has bugs and that it changes your FF installation in ways that Mozilla hadn't intended. It certainly has a lot of options, but I just found it confusing and poorly documented.
Tabbrowser Preferences may have been useful in older versions of FF, but you can recreate much of what it offers by using the Mozilla tabbed browsing tweak recommendations:
I also add the SessionSaver [extensionsmirror.nl], Tab Clicking Options [twanno.mozdev.org], Undo Close Tab [extensionroom.mozdev.org] and miniT [v2studio.com] extensions and then I find that I have almost all the same tabbed browsing features that Opera has.
The other extensions are just preferences I find useful.
