I would assume ctrl-t still works –  Codism Feb 16 '13 at 3:30

CTRL+N is the shortcut for opening a new window, what it seems as you are looking for is CTRL+T which will create a new tab.

This opens a new tab. What I wanted (and what CTRL+N does though in a new window) is to duplicate the page. –  Theta30 Feb 19 '13 at 22:15
I found the answer here superuser.com/questions/434709/… Sorry for confusion –  Theta30 Feb 19 '13 at 22:24

If you really want Ctrl+N to open a new tab, you can use Tab Mix Plus and enable the Enable Single Window Mode option. This will also force all popups, etc, to open in the one window.
