In ubuntu 11.04 how to make epiphany web browser open in new tab, not window.

Asked by oocevin on 2012-02-11

I have been trying for days to get icedtea6 to work in the new firefox 10 with now
head way. But it works in epiphany web browser. But I do not like clicking on a
url and it opens a new window. I do not see any thing in preference to change it.

Does any body know how.

Have to use it till they get that stupid firefox 10 right.

I have a script to give oracle java 1.7_02 if you want that in Firefox. Is your Ubuntu 32bit?
