If you use a version of Firefox that has a Windows menu, you may prefer not to have multiple tabs in the same window. Give this extension a try.

If you ever used the Chrome extension "New Tab, New Window" or "Tab-less", this one uses the same APIs (detect new tab => create new window for that tab).

Note: This extension does not hide the tab bar, nor menu commands related to tabs. If you want to hide those, you could consider using custom style rules in a userChrome.css file. I posted an example here: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1237154#answer-1164247

BUG ALERT: The Customize tab does not work when moved to a new window. In order to use Customize, you'll need to temporarily disable this extension on the Add-ons page, Extensions panel. After you finish customizing, you can re-enable it.
Risk impact

I Hate Tabs - SDI for Firefox is safe to use. It does not request any sensitive permissions.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

I Hate Tabs - SDI for Firefox has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Great add on! Thank you. I do have a suggestion though, which is the implementation of a feature that allows you to add exceptions for addresses that you want to keep opening as tabs. The thing that gave me this idea was the fact that, after downloading add on, I was unable to access the Firefox's customize page. Without the add on, it would open as a tab, and, with the add on, it just opens a blank window when you click it.

Tabbed browsing has been the bane of my browsing existence since its inception over a decade ago. Clumping every window you may ever open into one location (eggs in one basket sorta thing) was the worst design choice and even more so that it was forced on everyone. It also doesn't make sense that no matter what tab I'm on, if I open a new tab, it doesn't go to the end of the line but immediately after the tab you're currently in which totally messes with my mental map where each window is and severely reduces workflow. In rolls in "I Hate Tabs". What a perfect name for an add-on. I will forever use this add-on. Thank you Mr. developer sir :)
