Firefox not bringing up new tab

  Halmer 07:23 30 Jul 2007

Even though under Tools/Option/Tab I have it set to 'New pages should be opened in a new tab' it brings up a new window every time.

Any ideas please?

errr odd one..

Does CTRL + T open a new tab?

It brings up an 'untitled' tab thanks.

and reinstalled but the problem is still there.

It was working fine last night so I'm perplexed at the moment.

Is is the same in Firefox safe mode?

It brings up a new tab in safe mode.

Just for the record: You press 'Ctrl' hold it and click on a link. Do you get a window or a tab?

A new tab.

It may be OK now. Not sure what I have done but just testing.

Will post back thanks.

Believe it or not I have the exact opposite.

I have set "New Window" and always get a new tab!

I ahve just learned to live with it.

Should it bring up a new tab every time I click on a link? It does on some eg 'The Sun' and not on others eg 'the BBC'.
