No, which is why there's already an extension (probably several
extensions) that can totally disable tabbed browsing.  There's also
several extensions for making more out of tabbed browsing that FIrefox
does by default.  The point is that there's already a framework in
place in Firefox for configuring its behavior -- even behavior the
designers didn't originally anticipate.  Asking for another method to
do essentially the same thing is just adding to code bloat and
inefficiency.  And that's already the trademark of a different OS.
