Too many broswer open - firefox

I just d/l firefox yesterday, looks good and seems to be better than IE. But each time I click a link it opens up a new browers so when I look in PN forums I have 30-odd windows open.

So... how to I open links and only have 1 window open.

Thanks........ (puzzled)

make use of the tools with firefox, the inbuilt cookie manager is good & you can select to keep your login details for various forums but as soon as you turn firefox off it deletes all other cookies inc. undesirables Had virtually no spyware/adware since activating this

You can force a link to open in a new tab in Firefox just by holding the Ctrl key as you click the link, that includes windows where the <a> tags specifies it should be a new window and I 'think' it even works for forms that submit to new windows.

I though firefox, has an option to open windows as tabs rather than new windows anyway.

I would check your machine your spyware etc, as well, can't hurt.

GB,

yes it does that now, but for some reason it opened a 'new' window on every link. Must of been a glitch....... working fine now.
