    Is there anyway to override a webpage's use of "target" when clicking on
    its links?

    I would like links that are set to open a new window to open in a tab
    instead.

    Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Tabbed Browsing -> Force links ...
    -> a new tab

    It's not available by default (I've no idea why the FF developers have
    chosen to hide it).
    But you can enable it by setting the preference
    browser.tabs.showSingleWindowModePrefs
    to
    true
    For this, type
    about:config
    in the addressbar, locate the pref and double click it value to toggle
    its value between false and true.

    Maybe you have to restart FF before "Force links ..." is visible in the
    Options dialog.

    I too was looking a way to avoid those forced windows!
