How do I set up FF so that...
Say I have my Google home open. I click on a link, and I want it to always open in another tab. What I'd like to do is have several pages open, but I don't want them to launch from/out of the home page. What am I missing?

IE 6 holdout

I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to do, but...

If you want to open each Google search result in a tab of its own, just middle-click on the links instead of left-click.

If you want to open multiple tabs at once, bookmark them and click on the "Open in Tabs" menu option at the bottom of the bookmark menu.

If you want certain sites (such as Google) to always open their links in new tabs, a GreaseMonkey script will do it for you.

Otherwise, please give a more specific example.

In case of Google you can just set "Open search results in a new browser window" in Google's preferences and "New pages should be opened in new tab" in Firefox's settings.

let me try to rephrase;

I have Google.com open. I click on a link on that page. I want it to open in a different window/tab..leaving the personalized Google page in place.

Hmmm... And what's the problem? You just middle-click on the links, as Roger said.

Use middle-click to open a link in a new tab.
Use shift + click to open a link in a new window.

Or use this Greasemonkey script that opens all the links from your Goog homepage in a new window/tab:

You need Greasemonkey first:

Windows: Control(CTRL) + Click
Mac: Option + Click

I think this will solve the problem.
