I can't figure out how to fix this. Going from tab to tab is great. Zippy. But when I go somewhere through my address bar, the tab for the site I'm currently in goes away. Does anyone know how to change that?

click on the blank tab on the right before you enter a new URL. That will open a new tab, keeping the others open.

or if you are using IE, you can hold ctrl while you click on a link to open a new tab

It depends which browser you're using. If you've got the latest internet explorer 7, do as kaytris said & that will open a new tab.

If you're using Mozilla Firefox, follow these directions:

Creating and Loading Tabs


To open a new tab, press CtrlCmd+T, select File > New Tab, or double-click an empty space in
the Tab Bar.


To load a link in a tab, you can do one of the following:



* Middle-click the link. (If you have a mouse wheel, clicking the wheel is
equivalent to middle-clicking.)

* Drag the link and drop it on an empty space in the Tab Bar. (If only one
web page is open, the Tab Bar may be hidden. See Customising Tabbed Browsing for information on how
to change this.)

* Drag and drop the link onto a tab to open the link in that tab.

* Right-clickPress Ctrl,
click on the link and choose Open Link in New Tab from the context menu.



To open a URL in the Location Bar in a new tab, enter the URL and press
AltOpt+EnterReturn.

If all of that doesn't confuse you, then nothing will. ;D ;D

There's also another browser out there called Ace Explorer. Very similar to IE except it opens a new tab automatically when you click on a new link or type in a new adress into the addy bar. Much easier. :angel:

Thank you very much, Garth. Yes that was confusing as hell but I'll figure it out. I know that in IE and FF you can Ctrl + click on link to get a new tab. I guess you have to "tab" each new link to prevent the current tab from going away. I'll fool around with it.

You thread-backer-outers are stinkin weenies.
