    I'm transitioning from Firefox to Safari (3.1) and trying to tweak Safari a bit to act more like the customized FF I have been using.

    I've installed Safari Stand but have a couple of questions:

    [1] Forcing all Safari windows into tabs: It's my understanding that Stand addresses this issue. However, I'm finding I still get multiple windows opening up under the following condition: If I have a Safari window open and I click on a link in an email, it will open up in a new window.

    The only thing I see in Stand's preferences related to Tab/Window opening is on the "General" tab where it says "open target link in new tab". Is there some other setting I'm missing, or is Stand not able to capture links from emails in a new tab?

    [2] Start finding as you type: If I understand this function correctly (under the "Key Action" tab of Stands preferences, checking "Automates Find Function" should start the find/search on page function immediately as you start typing (rather than having to first do cmd-F) like Firefox does. Doesn't seem to be working

    Thanks. I'm amazed at how much quicker Safari is in loading pages than is Firefox!

    Weird. I have that checked but I still get (some but not all) Mail links opening in new Windows.
