    I like firefox's tab-browsing feature. However, nowadays many web
    sites (especail news sites) prefer to open a link in new window. It is
    very annoying to me each time a new window is popped out when I click a
    link that supposed to be opened in current window. Can anyone provide a
    solution (or a plugin) to open all links in current window *by

    AFAIK it's more to do with the HTML code of the page you are browsing.
    IF the pages requests the browser to open in a new window, then the
    browser is going to open it in the new window. Not sure if there is any
    plugin that will force url to be opened in new windows to be opened in
    teh current window. Gurus out here maybe know of something like that.

    Proxomitron ("") is a local HTTP
    web-filtering proxy which modifies the HTML on the fly as it downloads.

    Configure Proxomitron to modify links so that they do not open a new window.

    Link HTML code before modification:

    <a href="" target="_blank">

    Link HTML code after:

    <a href="" >
