  • Firefox on a laptop

    I'm using Firefox on my desktop and laptop now, and not looking back. I like how on my desktop, I can click the third mouse button (wheel) on a link and have it open in a new tab. My laptop, obviously, only has two buttons and an eraserhead. How can I bind, say, right-click to open a link in a new tab, and then set right-click to ctrl-right-click or something similar?

    Rephrased, on a two-button system, how can I click once on a link (without additional keystrokes) to have it open in a new tab in Firefox?

    What is the difference between Mozilla and Firefox?

    I have them both installed and I seem to prefer Mozilla.
    Firefox appears to have some issues with certain vbulletin version 3 rendered sites.

      Mozilla is a browsing suite. Firefox is a standalone "next generation" browser from the same people.

        So it doesn't hurt having them both installed, for not only just site debugging

          Install the Tabbrowser Extensions extension and you can bind it house you want.

          I have it so every external link opens in a new tab with a simple left-click.

            I have that extension installed, too, didn't know it could do this. I already have it set to open external links in tabs, not windows.

            Looking through the thousands of options now...

            edit: and I don't see any binding buttons for opening a link in the viewport in a new tab.

              It is under Advanced Use -> Open in new tab always. Check the box that refers to "Link to external site".

                There seems to be a misunderstanding; I already have that option set. What I want to do is explicitly open some links in new windows when I want to. The links can have any target (or none). Essentially I want to move the action for the middle mouse button to another button
