Is there a way in Firefox to control how a link opens based on which site you are on?

Is there a way in Firefox to control how a link opens based on which site you are on?

When I'm on my home page (www.google.com, for example), I would like all links to open in a new tab even if it explicitly orders the link to open in a new window. On the other hand, I would like all links on Hulu to open in a new window.

"I use Firefox with Tab Mix Plus to do this so sort of do what you want.

While it doesn't allow specific behaviors based on the site you are on, I get the same effect by configuring what the mouse buttons do.

I have it set up like this:

LeftClick - Load the page like normal but, if the page tries to open in another window, it forces the page to open in another tab instead.
MiddleClick - Open the page in a new tab.
SHIFT-LeftClick - Open the page in another window.

You can set it up any way you want."
