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?

That would be great actionparsnip, I want ff. But without pogo to work
for my wife I may even have to go to windows till they get it fixed.

AND I HATE WINDOWS!!

But I love my wife hahahaha

So please give me the script and in detail on how tos on doing it.

I know other people would like to know as well.

I know new releases has some bugs, but this one hit home with
the boss:-)
