    For some reason, my Mozilla Firefox is now opening Google links in new windows/tabs. I found out that this was an option, but I
    don't want it like this. I want it so that when I click on a Google link, it will open the link directly without opening a new tab
    or window.

    I've looked around but so far, nothing has worked for me. [​IMG] Also, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program as well as
    trying a newer version; but to no avail.

    I never had this problem before and I'm wondering if I can get rid of these settings. Thanks. [​IMG]

    I'm having a more serious problem with Firefox, it's resetting every time I open it. >_>

    Hmm delete your mozilla firefox config folder?

    And that doesnt sound like a default option - it sounds like the customise google extension or similar. so look into its settings

    You will never know.....
    remember, if you cant fix, reinstall it. I have had to do this many a time with firefox, awesome but not without its bugs

    Settings > Privacy > uncheck "always clear my private data when I close FireFox". This seems like what's it's doing.

    Actually, for some strange reason, it was already on false when I first checked. :S

    And for some reason, when I go to Tools -> Options -> Tabs. It says that "New pages should be opened in: a new tab". I thought this would be the reason why it kept opening new tabs but then two things arose:

    1) On my friend's computer, he has Mozilla Firefox and the New Tab thing is ticked but he can open a Google link directly without any new windows or tabs.
    2) I don't know how to get rid of the dot that highlights the option. Like, its between two options: New tab/ New window. But I can't get rid of the dot altogether.
