Sticky Pinned Tabs

Sticky Pinned Tabs

This extension forces all links within a pinned tab to open with target=_blank. This makes your pinned tabs more "sticky" in that clicking on links won't lose the pinned content.

By default, all pinned tabs will open links as target=_blank. Go to about:addons and edit the preferences to opt out of this behavior for certain sites. You may want to ignore certain sites if they already behave like pinned tabs.

@Gerard: i think there is another extension for you then: - there description sounds exactly what you asked for. But personally for me - pinned is always pinned, i use it for things like issue trackers and wiki, where i want "table of contents" always open and never washed out, while all happend within the same site. For other fellow reviewers, if you feel the feature of this one should be in the settings of out-of-the-box Firefox - vote
