    Firefox - Open in new tab


    Just noticed this... Using FF in this forum, Right click on a dropdown item (like Forum Actions, Quick Links) does not have an option to open in new tab, like Chrome for example. But, you can drag/drop the dropdown choice to the New Tab "+" on the open tabs bar, and it will open. Maybe this is old news, just wanted to pass it on..... Tomcat.

    You can set FF up to open a new tab when you perform a search from the right hand box.
    browser.search.openintab

    Go into the about:config and you can find that option there. Just change it from the default of false to true.

    Did all that. Closed FF, cleared cache, etc, open FF. Same, no change. This is what I'm talking about, no right click option to open in new tab.Firefox - Open in new tab-2016-01-07_10h04_44.png

    @BunnyJ Found it Jeff! Shift+left click = open in new page. Ctrl+left click = open in new tab. I'm gonna close this out. TC

    Thank you, Edwin! Well, that is certainly short and sweet! And, effective! Where on earth is that documented?

    Documented? Not sure, but the FF setting is in Options/General:
    (the wheel click thing has been around since modern mice, I think)

    Yeah, I had that set as above. Just never occurred to me to middle-click!
