external links are to be opened in same tab (other choices are New Tab
or New Window) or (preferable IMHO) get add-on FireGestures which will
allow you to define a gesture executed with right-mouse button which
will close all other tabs, all tabs to right of current or all tabs to
left of current tab.
I use R-L-D to close all other, R-L-D-L to close all left and R-L-D-R to
close all left.
With TabMix Plus you can also specify (for example) that double-click on
a tab toggles lock-unlock so that the above gestures will leave
specified tabs alone. I use the double-click lock to keep my Google/ig
(user specified custom page) open while allowing others to be closed.
