FIREFOX – how to open multiple tabs at once
Many of our members have been introduced to the Chrome Extension LINKCLUMP but what about all our members who don’t use Google Chrome?
The Answer – Firefox “Add On” called MULTILINKS.
Multilinks makes grabbing coins in one hit easy. All you do is RIGHT CLICK (Wrong side of your mouse) around all the coins you wish to collect and they will automatically open all the links in a new tab.
NOTE: DIFFERENCES BETWEEN LINKCLUMP and MULTILINKS DEFAULT SETTINGS
Multilinks opens ALL your links in TABS AT ONCE.
Linkclump opens ONE link at a time with an interval set by you
So, if you go ahead and open more than ten tabs with Multilinks, depending on your computers size, you may crash the browser. The default in the ADD ON is set at 40 links to open at once but just be careful when you do – a lot of computers will not handle that kind of load.
(I will note here that the ONLY browser I recommend for Facebook Gamers is Google Chrome. Every developer on Facebook uses this as their primary browser when creating games and as such, is the easiest browser to trouble shoot. If you would prefer to use Google Chrome you can install it here. Then to use LINKCLUMP instead of the Fireworks ext MULTILINKS click here.)
Once downloaded you will have to RESTART your browser to activate the ADD ON.
The ABOVE INSTRUCTIONS are the DEFAULT setting for Multilinks so there is no need to adjust your settings.
If you wish to adjust your ADD ON you need to go to the EXTENSIONS in FIREFOX and I have put screen shots below to direct you how to do this:
STEP ONE – Install Multilinks
STEP TWO – To view it in Firefox go to your ADD ONS as shown in the below diagram.
STEP 3 – RESTART Firefox
You can either CLOSE your browser and REOPEN it OR you can click on Restart Now as shown in the below diagram:
After you have restarted the ADD ON or EXTENSION will look like this:
STEP 4 – To use Firefox Multilinks simply RIGHT CLICK (wrong side of your mouse) and DRAG to select the links you wish to open.
NOTE: The links will ALL OPEN AT ONCE in new tabs. You have to physically CLOSE THEM yourself.
ALSO NOTE: The default number of tabs that Firefox Multilinks will open is 40 so if your computer cannot handle a load like this and you feel you may accidentally open too many tabs at once, go to your SETTINGS and change the default amount to 10:
TO CHANGE SETTINGS:
1 – Go to ADD ONS –> EXTENSIONS –> MULTI LINKS –> OPTIONS. Then in the GENERAL SETTING you will see that you can alter the number of tabs to open at once, as shown below:
Then, change the DEFAULT Maximum number of links to a number that you are comfortable with. I would recommend no more than 10.
