Opening in a new tab in Firefox

I'm not sure if this has been discussed before, but I want to click on a link on an external program, but I want the link to open in a new tab in an existing Firefox window or if Firefox isn't open, to open Firefox.

I know it's possible with one of the tab-browsing extensions...I just can't recall which one of them it is:

TabBrowser Extensions (TBE)
TabBrowser Preferences
SingleWindow

:S

Okay I know this one is treading on thin ice but, thats one of the most annoying "lack" of feature in firefox. If it implemented true tabbed browsing when claiming to be a tabbed browser I think it would truly be a valid competitor to Opera.

So if all you Firefox fanboys and girls can get that kind of a patch into firefox I might very well use it more often :)

Woo managed to post about firefox without promoting opera...*almost posts url* :p

I think any of those extensions will have that option..

You can also try typing in "about:config" in the address field which will bring up a whole bunch of configuration options.. There might be one built in (look in the browser.tabs.***** sections).. I'm not sure if it's built in or not since I do have the "Tabbrowser extentions" loaded and it adds more options in the about:config view

As a Firefox user, I completely agree with you. :)
I think Firefox should, by default, have a complete MDI. New windows shouldn't have to open unless they're (allowed) popups. But installing an extension that does it takes just a second or two, so I don't really mind.

I found the extension in Tabbrowser Preferences 0.6.13. I believe there are a couple other extensions that would do the same thing but this one had the most options. This should have been an option within Mozilla though. Thanks guys.
