The user preference browser.tabs.opentabfor.windowopen does not work. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. In about:config, set browser.tabs.opentabfor.windowopen to true 2. Go to any page that you know opens a link in a new window (the news articles in the center of http://start.wanderingjew.net have target=_blank) 3. Click the link. Actual Results: Link opening in a new window. Expected Results: Open link in a new tab.
Firefox for Windows exhibits same behavior.
This pref was never implemented, the newest versions of Firefox use an alternative set of prefs. Whether the new system should support this pref as well or whether it should be removed from all.js I don't know.

What Pikey said. If you download a new nightly build, you can control target=_blank links in Tools > Options > Advanced > Tabbed Browsing.
