I have Opera set as my default browser. When I open a link from another app and I already have a window of Opera open, the link opens in the currently active tab. I'd rather have it open in a new tab.

How do I set this? I'm using Mac OS X Mountain Lion if that matters.

Have you tried unchecking Preferences > Advanced > Tabs > Reuse current tab? – Amos M. Carpenter May 14 '13 at 12:02

Open your preferences (Ctrl+F12 on PC, cmd+F12 on Mac), then go to Advanced > Tabs and uncheck the option Reuse current tab.
