Windows 7: Open Link With Current Browser

05 Oct 2013   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
Open Link With Current Browser


I run three browsers, with Pale Moon x64 (FFx fork) as my default, with IE 11, and SRW Iron as my secondaries.

My issue is when I select a link on IE 11 or Iron, it opens the link in Pale Moon x64.

What I'd like is to open a link in the current browser, not the default browser.

Possible or not?

Hello Sarris,

I use Pale Moon 32 Bit, Firefox, and IE 10, with Pale Moon as the default browser.
When I open a link in any of the browsers, it opens a new tab in the Current Browser.

Maybe because all my settings are to open a new tab (not a new window) ?
I prefer using tabs in the same Browser Window, rather than having multiple Browser Windows...

@ David;

I don't use tabbed browsing (Tab Killer extension by Piro).

I'm sure you're right, and I'll recheck the Tab Settings.

Yea, I guess that could be the difference in why mine works different than yours for this.
If you need me to post any screen shots of settings I use, let me know.
