I hate to pester everyone here on the SDMB, but like lots of people, I’ve found I have a computer problem that I can’t solve by Googling, and I don’t want to register with random boards to search for an answer.
The new update to Firefox is doing a real dumb thing – by default, when you click on a link embedded in a post such as this one, it opens another tab. I can click a check box in Options to get Firefox to open a new window instead. But I don’t want either of those results. I want to click a link and have the current window change to the new page. The way browsers have worked since I started browsing the web. Grrr. :mad:
I’m aware that, if I want a link to open in a new tab, I can right click and select ( I’m also aware the Firefox 4 has switched the positions of new tab/new window in that dropdown menu – Thanks, so much FF Dev Team) but sometimes I just want to leave a page behind. A Google page works like that, any of those links works like I want, jumps to a new page. Maybe it’s the type of link, but Firefox used to work the way I described.
