Firefox, to open window.open in a new tab instead of a new window


One of the great features of Firefox is that it allows tabbed browsing using a new tab instead of a new window.

However, sometimes when you click a link or button on a certain site, it opens in a new window instead of in a new tab.
E.g, Yahoo! Compare prices in shopping Click the price comparison button or product name in the upper right to open a new window instead of a new tab.

Yahoo! Shopping is a very useful site for price comparison because it searches 5 price comparison sites at once.

However, except for internet banking and shopping mall final payment, I rarely use IE and only use Firefox, so it was too cumbersome to open in a new window.


When you open a window with window.open() , it opens in a new window instead of a tab in Firefox.

 

Looking at the HTML source, I was using JavaScript using window.open() .

When I searched, it said that tab browsing in Firefox was not possible if JavaScript was used instead of just a link. (IE 7 is said to open in tabs, but I don't know because I haven't installed IE7.)

Whether the web page opens as an A link or with JavaScript, I would like it to open in a new window instead of a new window for users of Firefox.

First of all, in the Mozilla Korea forum, 'How to make window.open open as tab? ' I asked a question, and I looked it up.


To make it open in a tab rather than a window

I found two ways. One of the two methods is to install extensions in both ways to solve the problem. I'll have to post an advisory answer on the forum.

1. Using the Tabbrowser Preferences extension

extension for firefox 1.5 i use one of them.

1) https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/158/ install from .

2) Close firefox and restart firefox.
Extensions work only when Firefox is closed and then re-launched.

3) In Tools-Settings-'Web browsing using tabs', select 'Open all pop-ups as tabs' for the second 'When opening JavaScript pop-ups:' as follows and press [OK].

There is no need to close Firefox and launch it again.

2. Using the Tab Mix Plus extension

1) https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1122/ install from .

2) Close firefox and restart firefox.
Extensions work only when Firefox is closed and then re-launched.

3) Click Tools - 'Tab Mix Plus Settings', select 'Use Single Window Mode' in 'Link' and click [OK].

 

Tab Mix Plus seems to have more tab-related features than Tabbrowser Preferences, such as the ability to copy the current tab.

You can install only one of the above two extensions, or you can do both.

이제 Yahoo! iPOD price comparison in shopping When I go to and click the price comparison button or product name at the top right, it opens in a tab, not a new window.

To solve this problem, I found a workaround for the user to set something. Other than this, I think the web site creator should find a way to solve this.
