This tutorial explains how to open pop-ups in new tab in Firefox.

Pop-ups in New Tab is a free add-on for Firefox that automatically opens pop-ups from a website in new tab in Firefox. Thus instead of opening multiple windows for each pop up, it will help to open each and every pop up in new tabs of same Firefox window.

Sometimes, it is really frustrating when you click a link in a website and in return multiple pop-ups are opened with separate Firefox windows. Even if you have just opened a specific webpage, then pop-ups are opened with a new window. This Firefox add-on brings a simple solution to get rid of this problem. When this add-on is enabled by you and pop-up settings are saved as ‘allowed’ for a particular website, it will simply open pop-ups from that website in new tab.
