Firefox - open link in new tab

Post by greenleaf2 » Sun Jul 17, 2016 9:46 am

Right clicking a link in Firefox offers a few options, including Open Link in New Tab

Firefox has now started to open the link in a new tab, and also open it in the existing tab (so the new link is opened twice and the previous page has gone away)

I have found that this is being caused by the WoT 20151208 Firefox add-on, and disabling the add-on has restored the correct functionality.

What version of Firefox?

I have:
FF 47.0.1
WOT 20151208

along with many other extensions and do not have your problem.

My advise would be to create a new profile
Install only WOT add-on
You may have a corrupt profile or you have another extension causing your problem..

OK, it's Firefox version 47.0.1 (it was doing this on the previous version, and downloading 47.0.1 didn't solve the problem)

and Windows 7, service pack 1

Did you create a new profile with _only_ WOT installed?
