OK, I’m trying to give firefox a fair chance. I installed it, added a bunch of plugins to try and make it work like Maxthon. What I mean is when I click and drag a link, it opens in a new tab. While I can get firefox to do this now, what I can’t get it to do is to focus on this new tab that I just made by click/dragging a link! It is annoying the crap out of me. No matter what I seem to change in the options isn’t doing a bit of good. Anyone out there know how I can make this work? If I can get it going the way I want, I think I’m going to like it but right now I’m at my wits end!
Update: It seems if I click and drag UP, then it works like I want, any other direction causes it to open in a tab in the background. What gives?!
you can do to tools>extensions> then it should be all in one gestures, hit options and you can see what mouse movements do what. hope that helps..
Also, you should just be able to hit Ctrl-Tab to switch to the new tab even if its in the background. I know its more keypresses but at least you don’t have to reach for the mouse.
Thanks for the tips guys. I have it working now where any direction but down will open the new tab in the foreground, but for some reason i can’t get it to work with dragging down. Its better than it was now, so I’ll stick with it for awhile and see how i like it.
