    I'm switching to FF, but would like for it to open a new tab, rather than a
    new window, when I select a new site from my Bookmarks. This said, I have
    checked "select new tabs opened from bookmarks or history" in the Browsing
    section of the Advanced option. Nonetheless, when I click on a bookmark, it
    opens a new window, not a tab.

    I suggest that the Mozilla people work on this one.

    That's correct. The option isn't called "OPEN NEW TABS", it's called
    "SELECT new *opened* tabs". That option tells Mozilla you want the
    latest tab opened to become active. Deselecting the option lets new
    tabs open in the background.

    If you want to OPEN a new tab, you need to middle-click on it or
    right-click and select "Open in New Tab". To work in "single window
    mode" (like you want) you'll need to install the extension "Tabbrowser

    You suggest? I'm sure they'll get right on it!

    I would like that same feature as well. The plug in on the link you
    suggested won't install on v1.0

    _no_, martedì 21/set/2004:

    It's an extension.
    v 0.6.12 is compatible with Firefox 0.9.X, Firefox 1.0PR and Firefox nightly
