Now each time i open my email and click on a link it goes to the link and then I cannot go back to email.
I now realize that I have to right click and choose open in new window.
But I keep forgetting (force of habits) is there a way of doing it like in ie without this problem. Thanks.
When you talk about email, are you checking your email on the Internet by using a web-based email service like Gmail, or are you using an email client program installed on your computer?
Second question, what normally happens when you click on the links in IE?
I am using yahoo.
And when I used IE8 I would just click on the link like a comment from hubpages and it would go there. Leaving my email still open.
Now with this one if I click on the link it takes me there but lose the email and have to open another page and put password in again.
If I remember to right click and click on open in new window its ok.
but i cant go back it comes up with close all tabs. if I close the x on top right. Its a pain in the but IE was so much simpler
I thought there may be some think to change this setup somewhere in fire fox
Are you sure your Yahoo isn't still open, it's just in another tab? If you're clicking to close the window and it's saying "close all tabs" that means you have more than one tab open.
Next time, look just under your top toolbar and see if you have tabs.
Firefox has the option to open new pages either in a new tab or a new window. If it does neither, this is probably because the links are coded in such a way that Firefox sees them as instructions to open them in the same tab/window. Apparently, IE sees them differently and opens the links in a new tab/window.
There may be workarounds to force the link to always open in a new tab/window. I can look into this if you want me to.
However, the much simpler solution seems to be for you to go back to using IE 8 for regular browsing; then use Firefox for building and publishing new hubs. That's what I do, use each browser for what they are best suited for.
Thanks for your help on this problem. It is a pain, but I will try and do as you say. How do you swap back. My husband uses this computer too, so its a bit confusing. It would be better to do everything on one or the other.
Anyway I went this way as you know because of the loading of images. It caused double postings of my images on Info barrel but have nearly redone all (100 plus articles) of them now so that nearly all fixed.
So do not want any more hassles. thanks again for your help I really do appreciate it.
I suggest you send me an email, then we will get it sorted out soon enough. Meanwhile, enjoy your weekend!
First, be sure to check out SunSeven and Marisa Wright's comments below, maybe they hold the key.
Click on the 'Tools' tab
Select 'Options' in the drop down menu
Click on 'Tabs'
Check 'open new windows in a new tab instead'
That will do the trick for you.
Sunseven , I went in there and that tab is already ticked. the only one not ticked is the bottom one.
When I click on a new email a hubpage comment and forget to right click and say open in new window.
It takes me to that persons comment right.
now normally you can click on the back arrow and go back in any page to the last one you were looking at.
This does not happen anymore. That why I close it with the x at the top and that is when that sign comes up close all tabs.
I havent taken that out because I am still trying the get a handle on this. ggggrrrrrrrr
Marissa, I have lots of pages open at the one time, but I have allthe open pages showing on my bottom bar so I know its not open
I have to go to bookmarks and click on yahoo and then put password in to open it again. I feel like a real slow learner.
You would never ever think I used to teach computers for a past time career would you.
Every program has little things different and its just a case of understanding them I suppose.
Marissa it only says that when I click the x close
I tried to do a print screen but not clear enough for you to see
all i have is latest headlines, most wanted, free woodworking plans, Redgage, marissa latest rss,haha. and eBay
There is nothing in the address to open up like you do in IE
There is a star in there too for bookmarks. And nothing else just all the pages I have open on the bottom bar.
I am tempted to delete it and re-instal it to see if something went wrong.
The only thing wrong with that idea would be that I would have to re do all my info barrel images again.
Website examiner, thanks for the suggestion and you have great w/end too. tar
Thanks to Website examiner, Marissa and Sun seven everything working okay now.
Much relieved as it was frustrating thanks again.
No Barry, that wasn't the case at all, and the OP is perfectly aware of tab handling. Like she said, the problem was resolved yesterday.
