5+1 Ways of Opening Tabs in Firefox

Posted by Jason on September 9, 2008

Firefox is equipped with tabbed browsing which is very useful and lets us do your work in a managed and clutter less way. Tabs in Firefox can be opened with 5(+1) ways. Read on.

1. The Simple File=>New Tab Option: The ol’ good way of opening tabs in any browser. Click File and select New tab

2. Ctrl+T: Press Ctrl+T keys on your keyboard to open a new tab. A quick and easy way of opening tabs.

3. Double Click on an empty space in the tab bar: When you double click on an empty space in the tab bar, a new tab gets opened.

4. Double Click under an already open tab: There is some little space under an already open tab where you can double click to open a new tab. Useful if you have your tab bar full without any empty space (if no empty space, then step 3 cannot be used, so this comes into action)

5. Right Click on an already open tab: And select new tab.

5+1. Use Middle Mouse Button: When opening several links on a web page, you can use the middle mouse button (wheel) to click on link. This way the links will be opened in new tabs. With the middle mouse button, you can also close tabs, just click on them with it.

Enjoy opening tabs
