I do it with a right click no add-on needed.

Unfortunately this only works when you already have two tabs open.

It doesn't work when you only have the one page open, which is what I was getting at.

It doesn't have to be on an empty part of the Tabs bar right click anywhere and you get the same options.

For me anyway it doesn't matter if there is only one tab open, the menu is still there and it does open a new tab. Using FF 2.0.0.5.

For me, when there is only one page open, there's no tab.

Must be something in Options.

Yep, I didn't have 'Always show the tab bar' ticked.

under help-help contents ;D does this help FWF my friend 8)
Always show the tab bar

If you're only viewing one web page in a Firefox window, the tab
bar is not normally shown. Check this optionpreference to always show the tab
bar, including when only the Firefox window contains only one
page.

In conversations about computers or computer related, I will ask which browser they're using.  Most of the time they don't know there are other browsers than IE.  Some don't even know what a browser is, even though they use a computer.  I don't criticize these people as they don't know better.

It is strange that people in this forum would like or use IE (other than for it is required).  I wont discuss why not to use IE.  However, M$ most likely wouldn't have progressed IE as it did with IE7 if it wasn't for the market share that Firefox & Opera took from IE.  Bill Gates admited he had FF on his personal computer for testing purposes.

From my experience, non-M$ software works better than M$ software on Windows systems.  It is best to use non-M$ software on Windows as it will "force" M$ to improve.  Opera & FF is much better than IE anyway!  It doesn't make sense for forum users to "like" IE.

I tried K-Meleon, it was really fast, but like FF it used lots of RAM & CPU cycles.  Opera still rules! ;D

I just upgraded Opera to 9.22.  I had to re-add Dr. Web Link Checker.

Does anyone know how to keep Dr. Web Link Checker through an upgrade/reinstall of Opera?

A double left click on the tab bar also opens a new tab.  :)
