Force links that open new windows to open in new tabs in firefox.

April 7, 2007 by aaron

I’ve used Firefox for years mostly for the tabs. However, Firefox 2 removed the ability to “force new windows to open in tabs” and lately my number of “required” extensions have built up to the point that opening a new window takes 5-10 seconds. Which makes the occasional link that forces a new window very irritating.

To force all new windows into tabs type about:config in your url bar and set the following properties:

  1. ‘’ should be 3
  2. ‘’ should be 3
  3. ‘’ should be 0
