open link in new tab question


Greetings.

Windows XP Home, NS 7.2.

When I Right click on a link when Im using 98SE and NS, I get the "open in new tab" at top of menu, open link in new window at bottom. Which is how I like it.

When I use XP and NS, I get "Open link in new tab" BELOW "Open in new window"

Any way of switching these too around??

Basstracker,

I think that you hacked your comm.jar file in order to reverse the position of those two context menu items. The "Open link in new window" is the defaul setting. This is the hack, as posted in uFAQ:

How to get "Open link in new Tab" at the top of the right-click menu

In C:\Program Files\Netscape\Netscape\chrome, copy comm.jar, after first backing up the file.
Rename the file com.jar.zip, and unzip in a temporary folder
Open the file contentcommunicatorcontentAreaContextOverlay.xul in Wordpad, located in the Communicator folder.
Change the position of these two sections to look like this.

<menuitem id="context-openlinkintab"
label="&openLinkCmdInTab.label;"
accesskey="&openLinkCmdInTab.accesskey;"
oncommand="gContextMenu.openLinkInTab();"/>
<menuitem id="context-openlink"
label="&openLinkCmd.label;"
accesskey="&openLinkCmd.accesskey;"
oncommand="gContextMenu.openLink();"/>

Replace the original file with the edited one, and zip up comm.jar.
