Disable the feature of switching to tab, when you click on a link

When I click on certain links particularly in gmail, for example, if I get an email from youtube of a video being downloaded and I click on the video says, firefox opens this link in a new tab, but the problem is that it will automatically switch to this tab that I hate. This happens with the other links that want to open in a new tab for.

Switch to tab not more or go to the black list of the tab doesn't work. I got a fix for it in the comments: config page, but I've recently refreshed firefox and it removed the feature. preference, I don't want to use a plugin to solve this problem

(edited for clarity - c title)

Sorry, I'm distracted by the title of the question.

You can check the tab bar setting in Options/Preferences > tabs.

  • [] "When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately."

There are three prefs, accessible via the comments: page of config, to control the development, if you click on a link.

  • browser.tabs.loadInBackground (normal links)
  • browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground (javascript)
  • browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground (bookmarks)

  • Firefox can be configured to open the Firefox more recently-active window when you click on a link in another application? Using multiple profiles.

    I think it's really a feature request, but I don't see a forum for this. I used to use firefox almost exclusively, but switched to chrome when I started working freelance for a couple of different companies - the identities of chrome feature really helps me keep my sanity by having a unique identity for each company. However, a problem has recently developed with chrome which brought me back to firefox. The profile under firefox feature seems to have gotten much better since I made the first move, and I'm pretty happy with the way it works... with one exception:

    With firefox, clicking on a link in another application, always opens in the default profile. With chrome, she would always open in the browser window that was most recently active. It's a very intuitive behavior, because everything I do in the other application (e.g. thunderbird, evernote, Skype) is almost always linked to whatever browser window, I had finally opened.

    Any chance to do this implemented? Or maybe there is already a way to do this? I found the following related topics, but neither helped with this issue:

  • Change the e-mail program that opens when I click on a link in a document

    Clicking on an email address in a pdf document in Acrobat Reader, Mac Mail will open instead of the e-mail program I use, Outlook for Mac 2011.  How can I change the default program that opens when you click on a link?

    Hi Meenakshi,

    I assume you mean Adobe Reader > Preferences > e-mail accounts.  I did already but get an error message: "Error communicating with the server" when I try to send a PDF by e-mail (file > Send file > Attach to Email), even if the parameters are exactly the same as in Outlook.  Don't know how to solve this problem, although simple workaround is just to save the file locally and then send it as an attachment from Outlook itself.

    But with regard to the specific question that I asked originally, I don't try to send a document as an attachment; I am trying to send an e-mail to a hyperlink address embedded in a pdf document open. It seems the setting that you referenced only affects how documents are sent as an attachment, not what client opens when you click on a link embedded in a pdf document e-mail.

    Anyway, I solved the problem of the latter: in OSX, please make sure that in the native Mail application that the default mail reader is the application that you want to use ALL the programs/applications (Mail > preferences > General > default email reader), including Adobe Reader.  Once I put this in Outlook, click an address for e-mail embedded in a document pdf opens Outlook with the address already in the field "to".

  • not ask web pages uddenly that appears when you click on a link to

    I'm on a Web page that I want and I click on a relevant link for more information about this page. The link opens correctly but so is another page that I did not and has no connection or interest to what I do. Then I have to cancel the unwanted page and one remains open. It's very annoying and can you please tell me how to stop it. It only started happening recently.
    Thanks - I hope

    I understand when you click a Web link within a site, two Web pages open instead of one. This looks like some kind of Adware and I would recommend looking for malware or reset Firefox (please understand that this will restore Firefox to its default values, and all customizations will be removed in a folder called 'Old Firefox Data' on the desktop)

  • I still see "connection" on the tabs when I click on a link. It takes a long time before the page is displayed.

    When I click on a link on most pages, the word "connection" appears on the label, with a small rotating arrow, which remains like this for about 20 seconds.

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).

    • Do NOT click on the reset button on the startup window Mode without failure.

    It is possible that your security (firewall, antivirus) software blocks or limit Firefox or the process of plugin-container without you inform, possibly after the detection of changes (update) for the Firefox program.

    Delete all rules for Firefox and the plugin-container in the permissions list in the firewall and leave your firewall again ask permission get full and unrestricted, access to the internet for Firefox and the plugin-container and the update process.

    It is not an error so it's just to tell you that, due to low memory, the program that you are using is not respoding or takes to respond when you click Open program, it gives u this menu to move forward.

    therefore:

    You can either increase your memory or pagefile or having to run fewer programs at the same time. If you are running many programs you can remedy this by minimizing your startup programs and also make sure that your system is clean.

  • Cannot open in a page Web, on the page of the Bank opens a new tab and indicates that the site has moved here, but when you click on the button here it still does nothing

    When I go to internet banking as a clydesdale, it opens a new page to connect, but a few days ago it stopped working with the new update. Now when I click on connect, it says "FOUND the document pushed here." and clicking here opens another page of connection, but after being entered the details the page doesn't load. the same thing happens on other sites, on the other, when I click to read the messages page does nothing, and if I click to open in a new tab the same page is displayed instead.

    Theres been other people having this problem too...

    Yes, for example, that this person- https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1078226 -, but they did not post cost around if any suggestion made a difference, I appreciate your following upward.

    Here are two other things to check:

    (1) connection settings - have they been customized?

    "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Options > advanced

    Click the mini network, and then click the settings button

    The default value of 'Use system proxy settings' should follow your 'LAN' setting, as well as IE, but you can also try 'No proxy' to see if that makes a difference.

    (2) extensions - test Firefox to turn off Safe Mode

    Firefox Safe mode is a standard diagnostic tool to disable some advanced features of Firefox and extensions. More info: questions to troubleshoot Firefox in Safe Mode.

    Does not work if Firefox: Hold down the SHIFT key when you start Firefox.

    If Firefox is running: You can restart Firefox in Mode safe mode using either:

    • button "3-bar" menu > "?" button > restart with disabled modules
    • Help menu > restart with disabled modules

    and OK reboot.

    Two scenarios: A small dialog box should appear. Click on 'Start mode safe' (not update).

    Any improvement?

Instead, the url of the previous page still shows in the address bar.

  • ADF necessary validation is triggered when you click on ANY link off the page

    I have a couple of fields of text on a page and I put the validation 'Real' = required on them so that when I click on a button that calls a pageflow validation method is device when there is no data in the field.

    The problem is that it is also device when I click on any other button navigation or link off the page. Is it possible that I can do the required validation related only to a particular button?


    In addition, this jsff belongs to a taskflow which is deployed in Webcenter spaces so some think that the reason that has something to do with it.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Hello
    Make the other buttons property immediate = "true", then he ignores all validation on the client side.

    For example:-If you want to do validation on the first button's click, but you don't want to do any validation on the second button's click, then place the immediate property = "true" on the second button and you're done.
