    Can someone please help me with a problem I have with Firebird 0.7 and
    links to other pages on some websites.

    The worst I have found is the popular

    Most links on the page hang. To give an example, nothing I click on in
    the 'BBCi Directory' works. I have to open IE to use these links which
    is not funny at all, because I luv Firebird. Is my browser set up

    Any help appreciated

    Works fine from here.

    Try a new profile, see if the problem still occurs.

    Such is life on the bleeding edge,

    the BBCi directory, using Firebird nightly 1122.
    In other words, WFM.

    Thanks to all of you for pointing me in the right direction. I have
    found 'the problem' by using a different profile. In both profiles I
    have installed the Tabbrowser Extensions by Shiroda Hiroshi.

    For anyone interested here's what I have found:

    There was one preferences setting difference between the two profiles.
    In my profile under Tabbrowser Extensions preferences - Advanced Use,
    I had checked the box which says 'Open links which refer to other
    site, in new tab'.

    This appears to stop the opening of many links in all tabs but the
