Also, I found a simple way for those who don't want plug-ins. Simply
type about:config in the address window and press enter. Click the
confirm button. Then go to
the line labeled 'browser.link.open_external". Change it to "1" and
restart the browser. Now Notetab opens in the same window each time
preview is hit.
