It's always the little things in life.
I visit a web site frequently (for my work) where every link you click opens a new browser window. By the end of my visit there I usually have 4 or 5 windows open. Annoying? You bet, especially when you've become accustomed to the ease and simplicity of tabbed browsing in Firefox (or even Safari!). Sure I can right click > open in new tab but it should be unneccessary.
I recently discovered a Firefox extension that will force the page to open in the same window and it's made me very happy. It's a two step process - first download and install Greasemonkey, then install "_blank must die". (Both of these downloads are extremely easy.) No more needless windows opening. (It's actually not the opening of the windows that I object to but the fact that I then have to go back and close them all - one by one.)
BTW - if you still aren't using Firefox there must be a really good reason.
