  • Doesn't work with Firefox 63.0.3. New tabs still opened on the far right side.
  • Didn't work, even when I moved the button for the specified site. Just tooo fiddly. Seems a no-brainer to me that all bookmarks should open in a new tab as standard. Who wants to leave a site you're on to look at another site, maybe for reference. Firefox note. Now I've learned to right click, job done.
  • It's almost as simple as can be, but I wish it opened the tabs in the background, respecting the setting I have in my Firefox options.
  • It works, but still can't open history in new tab
  • Does not work.
    Hi,

    Can you please provide more information such as the website you were trying to use, browser version etc., ?
  • Opening bookmarks in new tabs doesn't work. The setting cannot even saved. (Firefox ESR 52.8.0)
    Hi,

    It looks like the API provided by firefox to allow opening bookmarks in a new tab is not supported in Firefox ESR 52.8.0

    Hi,

    Can you please provide some feedback/thoughts on why the addon is rated as 1 star?

    Thanks,
  • Love it, been after an "open in new tab" so all links open in "New Tabs" (Like Maxthon)....Love It!!
  • This add-on works well, in Firefox on Android. When configuring the app for individual web sites, the fully qualified domain name for the site should be specified with the site's complete hostname - e.g www.google.com as instead of google.com. For any pages open when the add-on is installed, the add-in's functionality may become available then, once the page has been reloaded. Of course, it would be available for new pages and tabs too. Works well as a workaround for Google having apparently removed the "Open search results in new tab" option from Google "Search Settings."
  • Yes!
  • Doesn't work at all. I entered 16 specific sites from my list of bookmarks, and this add-on does not open a new tab for any of them. I am, unfortunately, on FF 57.2.
  • Thank you and congrats for your add-on.

    For many years I used https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/open-link-in-new-tab
    It was perfect for me.
    Sadly was not upgraded for FF+57.

    I installed and tested your add-on. In general, perfect, works ok.
    But in some pages (addons.mozilla.org and other pages), it doesn't work. I realize it is because some pages doesn't allow it. Am I right? I tested wildcards like *.*, and even that didn't work.
    In some other pages, like facebook, the "notifications" option doesn't work with this add-on, it is totally blocked. The same happens with "friend requests", "messages" and many other functions in facebook. Or am I doing something wrong?

    Thank you again!
  • Only issue I have is when a webpage has, say, a list of photos to show you with a "next" and "previous" button. This addon opens a new page (which opens up a blank tab labelled "New Tab") and you have to use Ctrl-W [or any other way to 'close tab'] to go back to the original page and see the updated content.

    An example you can test with -

    1. add www.stuff.co.nz as a site to the addon's list.

    2. view http://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/fashion/89850874/Best-worst-dressed-celebrities-Academy-Awards-2017.

    Can the add-on in this situation not create the new tab (or close whichever way works so one never actually sees it).

    Is this change possible?
  • 這是我用過最棒的另開分頁外掛了!!

    This is the best I have ever used plug-in! !
  • Hi, thank you for all your work with the Addon.

    However, even though I added a "*" for the Hostname..... I was sad to see that this did not then extend to bookmarks. I would so love to open bookmarks as well as everything else, in a new tab. I've no idea why Mozilla don't think this is important.

    Sadly though, adding "*" does not have this effect, and the page you are currently reading, still get's spoiled by the bookmark link you've just clicked on, when it would be so much better if it opened a new tab.

    Can this be done? Thanks though.
  • This is a reasonable workaround for the old option available from legacy TabMixPlus, but there are some sites that I don't want this enabled, like banking websites. Is there any plan in the future to have a n exclusion list for this extension? Or is there a way to set it up to do something like "all except for x"?
  • This is very useful, especially with the * wildcard. :-) Maybe that should be a switchable default option.

    Update:
    I wanted to open bookmarks always in new tabs, didn't realize there's a config option for this. Setting "browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs" seems to do the trick for me. (Now why isn't this a visible option in the config UI?)

    (Earlier version of this comment asked for this extension to support this. Not needed, obviously!)
  • Needs an option to open the new tab next to the current tab.
  • hey there, i know things are limited now but i have a feature request. i have * set so all links open in new tab. i was wondering if these could be implemented.
    options
    1) white icon
    2) open in background
    3) open at end of tabs

    thanks
    Hi,

    I spent some time on your suggestions and for possible workarounds if available

    1. white icon - It is not difficult to have the user select a white background in the icon from settings. I have created a issue on my github repository to keep a track on this.
    Link - https://github.com/ramkumar-kr/open-in-new-tab/issues/2

    2. open in background - There are two ways for this -

    a. "Bad" Workaround - Overriding a browser configuration in about:config - You can change the browser behavior to open all links which open in a new tab in the background by setting the
    "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground" config to true.
    More info on - https://stackoverflow.com/q/7386208

    b. Using the "tabs" API of webextensions - This would require an almost complete rewrite of the extension and can break a number of websites. I would like to use the tabs API but it will take a long time to iron out all the bugs and release it.

    3. open at the end of tabs - This is also possible using the tabs API and as I said in 2(b), it will take a long time for me to have this feature.

    Thanks,
  • Hi, great addon, and great idea, but why not the option to open link in a new background tab? (sorry for my english, I hope you understand) Cheers
    ¿Por qué no tiene opción de abrir links en segundo plano?

  • Please, change tabify.js this way:

    for(var item in items){
    var re = new RegExp( '^'+item.replace('*','.*')+'$' );
    if (re.test(hostName)){
    addTarget();
    }
    }

    This would allow us to specify domain* or *domain or even * as hostname (to allow all opening in new tab for all domains).

    A secondary field "exclude domains" would improve this further. If Allowed (*) and not Denied, thus addTarget.

    Thank you
    Hi,

    Thanks for the suggestion. It is a wonderful idea to define a regex for the hostname.

    However, there are few concerns such as the actions to be shown in the popup when a regex matches the url

    Can you send a pull request so that we can discuss more about it there?
