Windows 7: Firefox/Google - search result in new tab

27 Jun 2011   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Firefox/Google - search result in new tab

Hi. For reasons I won't bore you with, I've just done a clean install of Windows 7. Yesterday, when I searched for anything using Google, I would click on a search result and it would open in a new Firefox tab. Today, clicking on a result opens it in the existing tab or I can open it in an entirely new window. The Google search settings allow this:

But I don't want a new window, I want a new tab. Am I cracking up or is there an 'open in new tab' feature tucked away somewhere?

Grateful thanks for any assistance.

SUSSED IT - it's a Firefox "Tools/Options/Tabs" setting.
