but if I already have another window open, then the tab opens in the other window which is very annoying. it's only started happening today, and i havent changed any settings or downloaded stuff or anything. please help!!
In internet Explorer open a page, then click on tools, then internet options, go down to tabs, across to settings, then at the bottom "open links to other programs in", make sure the middle one is selected 'A new tab in current window',then OK twice.
wooo i've done it - thanks guys! stupid firefox. if anyone else has this problem here's how i did it (with thanks to j_ff from support.mozilla.com)
[Solved] Here is a step by step solution for newbies:
Install the Menu Editor add-on from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/menu-editor/ .
After the installation, go to Firefox> add-ons (or simply use Ctrl+Shift+A)
Go to the Menu Editor "Options"
In the "Main context menu," simply grab the "Open link in New Tab" and place it below the "Open Link in New Window"
hadiy93 - No Gengiscant isn't suggesting you install a new version of Firefox. There is no mention of that. He is suggesting you open Internet Explorer and then follow the instructions that he has given you.
