    How To Force Open Link In Same Tab In Google Chrome

    Well perhaps a tab manager would allow you to easily identify and close unwanted tabs as well as providing a list of open tabs that you can click to open. Plus import or export tab lists so that you don't loose them. Anyway that was my line of thinking.

    Everywhere I look - it seems that there is no way to override external link handling in Chrome by design.

    One thing you can do is use this extension:

    Open Link in Same Tab - Chrome Web Store

    It does open external links in the same tab but requires a right click to choose option from context menu.

    Google chrome and firefox starting up with a virus website (fanli90)

    I've tried malware bytes and still no solution. It found a few viruses and still nothing. Website still opens up with a virus website. I've become accustomed to chrome becoz of the way my bookmarks and the new tab page is set up so I really don't wana change. And as for task manager I've tried that but I cannot find anything suspicious I'm going to check it out again soon, thank you. Any other options?
