New nightlies have this preference
Authored by: soob on Nov 21, '02 12:10:59PM
(sorry if my previous comment was misleading, I had thought the poster was talking about the latest Mozilla nightly builds) hmm, I can't seem to get Chimera to open external requests in a new window now. Using Build ID: 2002112004, I changed my tab preferences to "opens a new window" when responding to other application requests then quit. Then removed the two "browser.always_reuse_window" and "browser.reuse_window" lines from my prefs.js file and made sure they weren't in my user.js file also. Running Chimera again just loads external requests in the same window. I decided to do a little testing to see what setting affects what and how they work in Mozilla. I started with what I think is a clean prefs.js file for Chimera... no browser.always, browser.reuse, or browser.tabs lines. Changing preferences to different settings, here's what I see: # supposed to open in new window - just reuses window (same as 2)
user_pref("browser.reuse_window", 0);
# open in new tab
user_pref("browser.reuse_window", 1);
# reuse window/tab
user_pref("browser.reuse_window", 2);
For Mozilla, it looks like only the following pref has an effect:
user_pref("browser.always_reuse_window", true);
None of the "browser.reuse_window" settings made any change for Mozilla.
