    Help! I have Windows7 and am running Firefox. I am trying to force the browser to open each new search result in a new tab so I can switch between them, but it refuses to do anything but change to a new window every time. I followed instructions to open Tools, Options, Settings (tab) "open in a new tab" and saving this but it just doesn't work. It's a pain having to find past results or open new windows all the time.

    I would also like to do this on IE also.

    Any suggestions please?

    As a workaround until somebody offers a fix does it work if you right click on the link and select "Open in new Tab"?

    What version of Firefox (the current is, I think, 17.0.1)?

    Thank you, yes that will work. I was hoping to open a new bookmark / favourite automatically in a new tab. But I will use this until another suggestion comes up.

    '
    When you left click on a bookmark is it opening a new Window? When I left click on a bookmark (Firefox or IE) it opens in the same tab. I have to middle-click to get a new tab or right click and choose 'new tab' or 'new window.'

    Yes, a completely new window. I can't seem to program it to do anything else :(
