IMHO. One of the handiest tricks in FireFox is to open each link in a new tab, simply by clicking the SCROLL BUTTON.

Saves an incredible amount of clicking the back arrow, and regularly losing a web page you really wanted to keep available.

Good tip rowal5555.
I use that all the time.

It can also be done by using, Ctrl+left click.
Shift+left click, will open the link in a new window.

To add even more functionality to your tip, try using the Tabs Open Relative extension.
It makes all new tabs open to the right of the current tab, rather than at the far right of the tab bar.
In the case where several new tabs are opened in a row without switching tabs, each subsequent tab will be opened to the right of the previous one, so as to keep them grouped together.
It helps to keep opened links, better organized.
For example if you have three tabs open, {A}, {B} and {C}, where the current tab is {B}, and then you open three more tabs, {1}, {2} and {3}, you'll get:
{A} {B} {1} {2} {3} {C}

Instead of:
{A} {B} {C} {1} {2} {3}

That's a good one. Thanks tg.

It can be a bit of a nightmare opening links from a dozen tabs. LOL

Cheers

Well, I just learned something new about FF. Neato!

Another tip: to switch between tabs using the keyboard, press CTRL+TAB

You're welcome, rowal5555.
That's my favorite extension.
When you have 3 windows open, a dozen, or more tabs, open in each window, and all new tabs open at the end of the Tab Bar, things can get real confusing, real quick. :thumbsup:

Great tip. I discovered it by accident when I first got IE7. I LOVE it.

FYI, in IE7, under Tools > Internet Options >General, there's a section on Tabs. You can specify that all new tabs be created NEXT to the originating tab.
