My option "open in a new tab in the same window" has stopped working.

After working for centuries without any problem, my option "open in a new tab in the same window" has stopped working.  Support suggested that I go to tools, select internet options and open tabs, and then select open in a new tab in the same window option.  I did as instructed and concluded that this option under the tabs was already selected and unchanged.  I changed this option, closed my browser and restarted my computer as instructed.

As before you follow these instructions, and when viewing online and wish to open a link in a new tab in the same window I once again this desired option.   Internet does not take into account my instructions and opens my link in a new window.  This is extremely irritating.

Does anyone have a solution?

    if I can possibly just create a new config line

    You can't, that's why I suggested the modules above. There is no option in the user interface or preferably hidden in Firefox that can duplicate a tab whenever you open a new tab browser.newtab.url can only be set to a fixed address, what address is to be opened in the current tab.

    Are the only two built-in methods to duplicate a tab:

    1. Hold down the Option key and drag the tab to a new position on the tab bar.
    2. Hold down the command key and click the reload of the address bar.

    With the Firefox 4 RC, the 'open in a new tab' and the 'open in a new window' - buttons have changed places. This is quite annoying because I normally do without looking, but now it always opens in a new window instead of a new tab. Is it possible to restore it? Perhaps in your own settings?

  • After execution of the new updated Adobe, HP Elitebook 2760p left click on the touchpad button has stopped working.

    Original title: left click not working not not on HP laptop

    On my HP Elitebook 2760p running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, left click on the touchpad button has stopped working.  The right click works, the works of pad, (scrolling and click on) it's just the left click.  It started after the execution of the new update of adobe. I tried to uninstall and reinstall the driver synaptec. I tried the mouse fast and slow speed. I tried pressing rigid, flexible, in different places. I would try to uninstall the update from Adobe, but it won't allow me.  So I uninstalled Adobe Reader and re-installed. Still nothing. Any suggestions?

  • How do you do windows open each new folder in the same window?

    in Control Panel-folder options, open each folder in the same window is selected, but whenever a file is opened, it opens in a new window, what's wrong?

    Windows 7 pro, clean install, toshiba portege m700

    I had this problem, but after installing IE8 on Windows Vista.  I was unable to make Windows Explorer open folders in the same window, even if this option in 'Options folders'.

    The response marked here seems to have given back me the feature, but unfortunately it seems that I can not open files in their own windows separated (when this option is selected). Well.

    Here is the solution:

    Run cmd as administrator and run the command "regsvr32 actxprxy.dll".

  • Redirect to the new URL in the same window?

    Hi all - I have a SWF embedded in an HTML file. After the film has finished playing, I want a new URL to load. I currently have the following code in the final keyframe of my layer actions:

    navigateToURL (new URLRequest (;

    .. which works, but the problem is that it opens a new window for the new URL instead of redirect in the same window, which is what I prefer. Y at - it a different command that I can use to force the new link to open it in the same window?

    I guess I could use a Javascript redirect to breast HTML of the web page, but it seems safer for me to use Actionscript within the Flash animation. Anyway - thank you very much in advance for any help.

    It is roughly the same as what you would do with html...

    navigateToURL (new URLRequest (""), '_self');
