    You can open bookmarks in a new (background) tab directly by clicking on them with the middle mouse button, or holding down Ctrl while left-clicking. This is similar to the way Firefox & Safari work.
    From Google Groups- but I think this is same as you found.

    Now I've confused myself. There was a time when I could click a link in SeaMonkey (& I think Firefox), & it would open a new tab. Now it don't. Oh well, not gonna lose sleep over it.:)Still lots to learn :)

    Best advice: For whatever browser you're using, click on Tool> Options (or the equivalent> Select each tab one at a time and see what setting options you have, customize the setting as you want> Close the browser> reopen.

    Firefox> Tools> Options> Tabs> Check "Open new Windows in a new tab instead"

    This 'habit' should have started when you got your first computer with your first operating system. Choosing File, Edit, View, Tools, etc. will open a whole new world for you.

    The other part of today's learning lesson is:
    Open Windows Explorer- either right click on Start> Explore or press Windows key + E. Acquaint yourself with your files and folders. Click on each + sign and expand the folder. You will be amazed at all you find these.

    Doing a right click> Properties will give you information without opening the file or program. The right click-and the Context menu is one of the most powerful parts of the OS.

    You will be using a browser and the operating system most of the time you spend on the computer. Learn what they have to offer and they will serve you well.

    Thanks. I remember the first computer I had. I got it out of a trash bin, but it did work till I started exploring unknown territory.
    I accidentally tapped the backspace button a few times before I realized I shouldn't of.
    Needless to say after I shut it down that night, it never came back to life.
    I think I was in its registry.
    Thanks for the info, another thread I'll bookmark.(y)

    Read my words: Stay out of the Registry! Many uses cause problems trying to 'fix' something in the registry. I realize this isn't the system you dragged out of the trash bin, but it's still a good rule to follow

    Definetely. The only time I've recently been in the registry with this pc was when Broni had me do a back up. I was still hesitant to follow his direction,but did so & I'm still online:)
    I don't mess with ANY registry boosters,defraggers or anything to do with it UNLESS I'm told to by someone in here I trust.(y)

    I'm having difficulty in this
    Java (2 files) - Version: 10.5.0.06 Download Critical Security Update
    Next Generation Java Plug-in 10.5.0 for Mozilla browsers
    In Google Chrome. I've clicked on the Download Critical Security Update link twice now & both times it told me it was installed successfully,yet it still shows.Why?
    I go to this link http://trackermap.kingcounty.gov/tracker-map-launch.jsp
    & a pop up shows the buses & it looks like this[​IMG]

    My apologies for that 2nd image,it can be removed since I tried & couldn't.
    Secondly, its not ABSOLUTELY necessary to have the java working in Google Chrome since it works fine in my other 3 browsers.

    I believe the current version is 10.5.1.255. I recall you had issues w/ Java updates before. Looks like your computer has a mind of its own & doesn't like Java.

    I think you need to make separate threads for separate problems. This one was about Sea Monkey, but mentioned you would like to go back to Chrome but had Cookie problem- I helped you with that.

    Now that you have Chrome installed, if you are having problems with the settings, that should be a separate thread.
    ==================================
    The link for the current Java update is correct. IT should take you to the Java download site for v7u5. You do not need a separate plugin for the browser.

    I have no idea what you expect of the Metro Link. That has nothing to do with the issues at hand. If you can Edit your post, please delete the Metro Maps. If you are expecting something from them you are not getting, please start a new thread with the appropriate subject.

    If you continue to have a Java update problem, please start a separate thread for the with the appropriate subject for the problem.

    I'm going to ask the moderator to close this thread. Please don't tack anymore subjects on before it's close.
