A few days ago, about when Firefox was updated to 3.6.21, Ctrl+click stopped opening links in a new tab. How do I restore this functionality?

The current version of Firefox in Ubuntu is 6.0 - 3.6.x was not "a few days ago", but "many months ago". What version of Ubuntu are you using? – Sergey Sep 8 '11 at 0:28
@Sergey If they're still on 3.6.x, then I think they're using Ubuntu 10.04. – Christopher Kyle Horton Sep 8 '11 at 1:06

Yup. Updated GreaseMonkey to 0.9.11 and that solved the problem.

Not sure what caused it to resume working, but it works now, after a restart. – user93200 Sep 11 '11 at 0:11
