Force open pop-up window in new tab

Is it possible to force Opera to open a pop-up window in a new tab, but only for links that open in a new window by default (not for links that open in a new tab by default)?
I already tried Chrome extensions "Open link in same tab, pop-up as tab [Free]" and "Single Window (open links in active window)".
The first works fine for pop-ups that open a new Opera window (they get moved to a new tab) but not for links that open a new tab (these ones open in the same tab instead of a new tab).
The second extension doesn't work, nothing happens, the pop-ups that open a new window continue to open a new window.

@sgunhouse It shouldn't be a problem for me, I guess the content from that sized pop-up window has no issues if its window gets streched to a tab in the same window.
In fact, the pop-up it's also a tab in the new window. So, I don't want that tab (from the pop-up) to be opened in a new Opera window, but to be opened in the existing Opera window in a new tab. This behaviour should perform Only for pop-ups that forces a new window, not for pop-ups that forces a new tab in the same window.
I really don't know why some pop-ups are programmed to open a new window?! What's the benefit?

Is there any update on this? Internet Explorer had this function 10 years ago, but still missing from Opera.
In Internet Explorer, go to Internet Options > General > Tabs > then you get the question:
When a pop-up is encountered:
- Let Internet Explorer decide how pop-ups should open
- Always open pop-ups in a new window
- Always open pop-ups in a new tab
