Tabbed browsing problem

by A_Vella / August 22, 2006 9:47 PM PDT

I use Maxthon and whenever I left click on a link, it is opened in a new tab.

Problem is that this works ONLY with Maxthon! All other browsers (Netscape, Firefox, Avant, Opera, Slimbrowser, Greenbrowser, Custom Internet Browser) insist on opening the link in the same tab always, in spite of the fact that I've configured all possible options to indiate that a new tab should be activated. Iive even checked manually their .ini and other preference files to make sure.

I've recently discovered that clicking the middle button does do the trick with Netscape, Slimbrowser and Firefox (only ones I've checked) but it's annoying as that button had previously been configured to open a menu (part of a media office keyboard program).

Is there any explanation for this? Why does Maxthon let me activate a new tab with a left click while all the others require the middle button?

Thanks. Happy

Maybe you need to rewrite the code?

Firefox is open source so that and a few others you could dive in and alter what it does on a link.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
