MacOS – Opening a new window in spaces with Mac OS X

macososx-spaces

I use a Mac together with Spaces which permits more than a single desktop.

I have a problem though, whenever I click on let's say a new browser window (loading firefox), spaces jumps to a desktop which already has firefox open. Is it possible to make osx open a new firefox window (or any other application), if it does not exist in the current desktop, instead of moving to the desktop?

  • Try unchecking the checkbox at the bottom in System Preferences » Exposé & Spaces.

    Remember to set your browser to open links in new windows instead of new tabs of existing windows.
