    Anybody knows how I can disable Firefox from opening new windows, and always open every and any link I click on in a new tab?

    Thanks

    Isn't this setting a basic one? Tools/Options "Open new windows in a new tab instead"
    This is the very first thing i enable whenever i do a fresh install of FF.
    You can even opt for switching to the opened new tabs right away.

    I know about that option, but I'm not really sure if it makes any difference. I do have it ticked/enabled though.

    Check out this behavior.

    I go to Like4Like, I click on any category, and I click to follow or view or like or whatever. The page will open a popup Window. I go on Followlike, I do the same thing, the same behavior - new Window.

    BUT...

    If I run any iMacro, and as long as the iMacro is running, even if the command in it is just WAIT SECONDS=999, and I then click on any link on Like4Like or Followlike or wherever, then it opens in a new Tab.

    I want the iMacro running behavior, to be the default behavior.

    See what I'm saying? Test it out, see if you get the same.
