    Hope you can remember the program's name you're talking about?
    Mozilla. Tunderbird. Firefox. Seamonkey.....
    No facts - no help. ;-)

    Assuming Firefox, Mozilla Suite, or SeaMonkey (you didn't specify), it's
    likely an extension to tabbed browsing. I use TBE and it will allow
    control over this. TBE is: Check the
    various extensions sites for other tabbed browsing extensions.

    Under the Tab menu - Use Tab - for the various link sources (History,
    Bookmarks, etc.) choose Open in New Background Tab.

    if you want links, bookmarks, etc, to open in the background, then you
    can do that without an extension. In the address bar type in
    about:config and when it comes up, look for the entry of:


    when found, double click on it and change it to true

    what extensions have you got? Anything like Tab Mix Plus, TBE, or
    others? Maybe one of them is causing the problem.

    before you do that, open the Javascript Console under Tools. When it
    opens, clear everything, then click on a link and see what the console
    tells you.

  14. I dont even know if i have Java installed. Does the Xp Home Install

    Java installed not makeit work ?

    I didn't say Java. I said Javascript. Two different programs and
    they have nothing in common. You'll find the Javascript Console by
    looking under the Tools menu

  16. I think some of the other plugins i have installed and uninstalled are
    still hanging arround. When i move my mouse over a tab the tab becomes

    Pretty sure that aint default and i enable dit with another plug in. I
    deleted the Mozzila folder in wndows dirrectory and unijstall all my
    plug ins before i did this !!!

    Only thing that dont run in background is links i click on.
    LoadingNorton Utes 2005 now. A scan and fix should do it :)
