I usually use Chrome, and clicking a bookmark would change the URL in the current tab. But in Firefox 57, clicking a bookmark always opens a new tab. I don't like this behavior, how can I make it work similar to Chrome?

  • "But in FF57, click bookmark always open a new tab in most right." How are you accessing your bookmarks? When I select one, it always opens within the current tab... just like you want. – Run5k Jan 27 '18 at 5:33
  • @Run5k update gif . Here I install a plugin to make new tab open right to current. Default behavious is open in most right. – Mithril Jan 27 '18 at 5:44
  • The default behavior should be to open a bookmark within the current tab. Unless somebody (or something) modified the about:config settings in your Firefox profile as described in this article: How to set Firefox to automatically open a new tab by left clicking a link or when opening a bookmark? – Run5k Jan 27 '18 at 5:52
  • @Run5k You are right, it is by a plugin mozilla.com.cn/thread-319507-1-1.html , which be bundled in Firefox installer chinese edition. – Mithril Jan 27 '18 at 6:16
