Link Issues

I was wondering why when I click a link in Trailspace I navigate away from the current window rather than opening up a new window or tab?

I am on Firefox and when clicking links on other sites I get a new tab which opens the link.

 

Is there a setting I can change to fix this?

Long story short: while it's useful for some power users like yourself, setting up a site so that it forces links to open in new tabs/windows causes problems for more people than it helps.

I learned something new. I used to be a right click - open in new window/tab guy. I will now be a middle click guy.

Thanks for the article Dave.
