Downloading URL`s in Firefox 2.0 .

  Daibus 18:34 29 Oct 2006

In Firefox 2.0 if you left click a URL from the History you then have to press enter to enable the site to download.

I seem to think that in the previous version of Firefox you just had to select the History item for it to open without having to press enter.

Any solution?

One click on a bookmark or history URL instantly brings in the page for me with Firefox 2.0, just as it did before.

A right click brings up the usual menu about opening in a new tab or window etc

Yes - left clicking on a Bookmark item brings up the URL instantly but an item selectected from History necessitates me having to press enter as well.

Which setting is wrong?

Many thanks.

Try Tools>Options>Tabs - last check box.

However, I haven't changed any configuration on these lines from or earlier.

I just left click and they open instantly. I haven't made any changes to the settings.

No - if I select a History item from the Navigation Bar I have to press Delete for the page to open.

Bookmarks and the History side panel work normally.

As anyone else come across this problem in Firefox 2.0?

I have now discovered the problem is connected with Tabbrowser Preferences that is installed on my PC.

I think it is known about and therefore the developer is trying to rectify it.

Firefox 2.1 is still a beta version, generally for testers and developers. Some quirks may be apparent.

It's the final release of Firefox 2.0 that's being discussed.
