Building burcell.org

Welcome to bpurcell.org, the personal homepage of Brandon Purcell. I started building bpurcell.org many, many years ago to share information I ran across everyday in my role as a Support Engineer and Consultant for Macromedia/Adobe. As a support engineer and consultant I always had a lot to blog about but as I moved into managment roles at Adobe my technical content dwindled.

I currently work as the Director of Technology for Universal Mind. My primary responsiblity is managing the SpatialKey project and it has been an amazing experience. I have been spending a lot of time working with Amazon Ec2 and will share my experiences through the blog in the future. I truly believe that Cloud Computing is the IT platform of the future and we have built the SpatialKey architecture on top of Ec2.

Something has really been annoying me with Firefox 3 where it would open a new tab for pop up windows. It was particular annoying when I was using a Content Management System that normally opens an HTML editor in a popup window and resize the popup window to a particular size. Instead of opening a new window the HTML editor would open in a new tab and resize the browser so that after I was done with the HTML editor I had to resize the browser back to its original size. I searched in the configuration for Firefox but the only configuration change is to change the behavior so that new links open in a new window and not a new tab, there was nothing about changing the behavior for pop ups.

With a little searching around Google I found a solution that solves the problem. The first step is to enter about:config into the address window to enter the advanced configuration panel. In the filter enter browser.link.open_newwindow.

The original setting for "browser.link.open_newwindow" is set to 3, set this value to 2 close the browser and reopen it. Now Firefox will open popup windows normally. I found the tip here.
