It would be really cool if there was a way to open links from the sidebar and have them stay in the sidebar.

So for instance, if I load a mobile website in the sidebar and click on a link in the website loaded in the sidebar it will automatically open over the top of an existing tab(this bug is already reported elsewhere).  The point is that it would be great if there was some sort of option to open that link in the sidebar.  

Several possible solutions would include: 
1) an option to control this behavior under tools>options
2) a toggle in the sidebar itself so that if someone was using a feature that they wanted to open out into new tabs such as clicking on a normal bookmark that they could quickly change the behavior.
3) a sidebar context menu item that would allow the link to be opened in the sidebar.

This last is probably a separate request, but if you are going to allow opening sidebar website links in the sidebar, being able to move backward and forward through pages would be nice too.

Hello,

In Firefox 3 it happens the same. But I remember that in Mozilla Suite it worked well. I've been looking for a aboud:config option in Firefox but there are nothing. 

There are more people who would like it fixed, I think this important in order to have a usefull open-in-sidebar feature.

Thanks

As the digital world continues to evolve, web developers and designers are constantly searching for new ways to improve the user experience. One feature that has become increasingly popular is the use of sidebars, which provide users with additional information and links without cluttering up the main content of the page. However, while sidebars are a useful feature, they can also be frustrating for users who want to open sidebar links without leaving the sidebar. This is where a sidebar request for the option to open sidebar links in the sidebar comes in. https://cncrouterhub.com/best-desktop-cnc-router/
Sidebars have become a staple of modern web design, offering a convenient way to present additional content and links to users. However, while sidebars are useful, they can also be frustrating to use, especially when it comes to opening links. By default, most sidebar links will open in the main window, taking the user away from the sidebar and the content they were originally viewing. This can be inconvenient, especially for users who want to keep the sidebar open while they explore the links.

I appreciate your participation! This site is excellent for anyone with an internet connection who wants to make money. I'm certain.
