Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Opera/9.10 (Windows NT 5.0; U; en)
Build Identifier: Minimo 0.2

Upon entering new urls in a current screen, Minimo 0.2 will always open that URL in a new tab instead of loading it on the current screen.
For instance if I opened Minimo and Google was the 1st site to load, lets say I click the "@" button to bring up the address bar to go to a new site, upon entering and selecting a new site, rather than the new site loading overtop of Google, it will open a link in a new tab, with no option to load the site on the current tab.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Minimo 0.2 and click the "@" button to bring up the address bar.
2. Enter in any site you wish into the address bar.
3. Select enter on your onscreen keyboard to go to the site you've just entered.
Actual Results:  
Entering to go to a new site on the current page, using the address bar, will open up that link in a new tab.

Expected Results:  
The site you put into the address bar, on that page, should load the new site on that same page. Not in a new tab. 

This should be optional in the preferences if people prefer that method.

minimo component is now closed and the minimo project isn't going to be supported.  New work has started on a new mobile effort.  Please see schrep's posting for more info.  We hope you will be involved.
