is there a way to make a bookmark open automatically in a new tab? (im using the smart bookmarks bar add on) currently im right clicking them to open in a new tab. ive looked at the firefox section on the geeks home page.

I believe the default behavior for a middle mouse button click is open link/bookmark in a new tab. It works for me and I don't have any tab add-ons, nor do I recall setting this.
EDIT: it's the same in FF2 and FF3
You are absolutely right ScottW. I had to Google that to find it. I could find nothing within FF that mentioned it.
Edit. In about:config, mine is (default)
Here is a Firefox help entry that talks about it:
In Options -> Tabs, check When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately, then:
"When you middle-click on a Web link (or hold down Ctrl while clicking with the left mouse button), the page will be opened in a new tab."
Do you right click? and not get a drop down menu?
Edit. Right click on an empty part of the web page you are on (or on the Tab). You should get a context menu with the time interval options.
