Problem with opening new tabs
Posted by: Juan
Date: December 18, 2008 09:34PM

I'm using K-Meleon 1.5.2RC, but this also happened with 1.5.1.

Sometimes (I think it's random), when I right click on a link, so I can open it on a new background tab, the current tab just closes immediately.

It is not happening with me. On your system does the random close happen before you get the popup menu for the right click, or do you see the menu and then the close happens?

I get to see the menu, and then the close happens.

My system specs (which I forgot to write before) are:

Athlon XP-M 1.5Ghz
1 Gb RAM
Windows XP 32 bit with SP2
K-Meleon 1.5.2RC, but also happening with 1.5.1

I have a similar system. 1.80 gigahertz AMD Sempron, 960 MB RAM, running XP-SP3. I use "open in a new tab" quite a bit but I don't remember anytime that it caused the current tab to close.

In EDIT - PREFERENCES - BROWSING - TABBED BROWSING - GENERAL - OPEN NEW TABS, I have "Next to the last tab" chosen. What do you have there?

Not happend for me in Win2K with K-Meleon 1.5.2RC2 & K-Meleon 1.5.0.
Are you tried to use Tools -> Mouse Accelerators -> Firefox 2 and use middle click to open links in new tab background?

If this is a bug ramdom can be very difficult to confirm it.

It works well like that, but I still have the random close issue when right clicking on links. It looks like it's random, so no way to solve it unless anyone with the same problem appears. I'm also a programmer, and know how difficult it is to find such a bug.

Are you using some extension or macro? Try to disable it.

ok everyone grab a hold of this:

I'm using K-meleon 1.5.0 (I don't like the newer versions...just this one). Whenever I LEFT CLICK on my mouse, I want the links to open as a new tab WITHIN THE SAME window (as is the case in ie 7.0 and firefox 3.5). But instead of opening in the same window as a new tab, the link opens in a SEPARATE WINDOW. Does there need to be some 'tweaking' in the config for this simple task?

Check your settings on Preferences (F2) -> Browsing -> Window Diversion (tab)
Also you can check on Preferences (F2) -> Browsing -> Tabbed Browsing
