Tabs in Firefox

by denjones / November 5, 2004 11:26 AM PST

I use Slimbrowser because I like the tab setup where each web page open a new tab.

I just downloaded Firefox and see it has tabs but maybe I've missed something looking at the help file. Can I set it up like Slimbrowser so each website I visit opens a new tab instead of replacing the old website in the current tab and without selecting "New Tab" from the File Menu.

Thanks in advance,

I didn't look for such and just hold the Control or Shift-Control depending on the effect I wanted.

to close a tab, middle click on the tab. If you have a bunch of tabs open and want to close all but one, right click it and pick "close other tabs". If there is a web address but it's not a link(you can't click on it) highlight it and drag it to the tab bar. If you type a url in the address bar a lot, you may want to go to View > Toolbars > Customize > and drag the "New Tab" button to the left of the address bar so you can just hit the button and a new tab will present itself then start typing the address.
Oh by the way can you tell I LOVE FIREFOX!!!

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?
