Open Multiple Web Sites in Tabs in Firefox

Weird, but I only noticed this the other day. Another one for the “Reasons to move to Firefox” List.

Did you know you can set Firefox to open multiple Web sites at once? This would be helpful for skimming all those Web sites you check out when you turn your computer on in the morning. No longer do you have to go to each one, one by one. You can now load them all up in one go, read them, then move on to more important tasks.

Here is how it is done.

First, go ahead and open up those five or six Web sites you check out every single morning. Once you have them all loaded up in their own tabs

Now right-click on the body of one of the tabbed Web sites, and select “Bookmark This Page…”.
Once you do that, a new window should pop up, asking you where you want to save the bookmark.
At the bottom you should see a new check mark box that says, “Bookmark all tabs in a folder”.
Tick the check box, select where you want to save it and then hit the OK button.

Cool Huh?

That should have created a new folder with the name of the first Web site you had opened up. If you want you can right click that folder and rename it to something such as, “000-Morning News”.

To get them to all open up, you can navigate to that folder in your bookmarks, then click “Open in Tabs”. (You can also Right Click on the folder and Open in TABS is an option).

As a bonus tip this time, you can also do this with any set of bookmarks you have inside a folder. The “Open in Tabs” option should be somewhere down the bottom inside any bookmark folder you have.

Have fun.
