    Cause Quicktime to start in new tabbed window (Firefox 1.0)

    Can this be done?

    When I click on one of the links in http://www.jsayles.com/familypages/EarlyMusic.htm (Left-hand-side, Music Selections table, England - say) this website page is replaced by Quicktime in the same window, which begins to play the chosen guitar piece. Clicking on Back kills Quicktime, not surprisingly.

    What I would like to do is to have Quicktime open in its own (tabbed) window, so it can play away merrily while I continue browsing the website page. About the only relevant area might have been Tools -> Options - Advanced -> Tabbed browsing, but none of the options there seem to have any effect.

    Is this an easy one? Thanks!

    To open a link in a new tab, hold the CTRL key and left click. That should do the trick for you.

    Hi John

    If you haven't checked them out already, you might try these Firefox Extensions:
    Tabbrowser Extensions and/or Tabbrowser Preferences

    Have a Great day!!!

    I would not recommend using Tabbrowser Extensions, I used to use it but it can cause FF to crash. On the other hand, Tabbrowser Preferences is excellent and I consider it to be a must-have extension.

    For what it's worth, iInstalling Tabbrowser Extensions coincided with my freezes that I mentioned in <post#=439049>post 439049</post#>.

    Re: Cause Quicktime to start in new tabbed window

    Have been running Tabbrowser Extensions from since before Firefox became called Firefox - without problems. Whether the crash could be linked to a memory leak and my being "protected" due to running 1Gb RAM I do not know.

    The creator of Tabbrowser Extensions includes a page on his site which covers some of the disadvantages of using the extension. It is worth reading that page before installing the extension.

    It is interesting to note that most of the verbatim quotes of objections by the MozDev team to TabBrowser Extensions refer to Firebird and not to Firefox.
