mozilla window.open in new tab

P: n/a
OK

Looked on the netscape javascript client side reference and I can't
see this.

Basically I have a link on my desktop (or even a local file in my
bookmarks) that I want to open several documents, each in it's own
tab, and then close the original document.

Popup enabling for the local file is ok, but the best I can get at the
moment is each document opens in a new browser on the windows toolbar.

Not quite what I want.

Can anyone suggest the appropriate combination of window properties to
achieve this?

Thanks
Denis

If you get an email that says "send this to lots of people", it's
probably some sort of hoax. Check www.hoaxbusters.org
You read this on the net. That means it's true. Do you believe that?

You can bookmark a group of tabs with the browser gui. I don't think
there is a JavaScript API exposed to force opening a URL in a new tab.
