Too many new tabs!!!

Post by SSlimmer » Mon Jul 14, 2014 7:11 am

I want Slim Browser to NEVER open a clicked link in a new tab unless I right click and specifically request a new tab. Right now, any time I click on a link that goes off the main parent URL the link opens in a new tab, which I find infuriating.

I have already gone to Tools>Options>New Tab and cleared all check boxes. The behavior has not ceased.

How do I disable "open in new tab" in ALL scenarios unless specifically requested with a right click? A left click of the mouse must never open a new tab.

some links are coded on the webpage to open a new tab and the only way around those I can think of is to copy the URL and paste it into the address bar

otherwise with all the boxes unchecked you should not get any but those type of links described above opening in new tab
