Wondering about links

Postby Ruckus » 13 Jul 2011, 13:08

This is a teeny tiny niggle, and I'm a newbie here so don't want to go rocking any boats....I was just wondering if it's possible to make it so that if you click on a link, it automatically opens in a new tab/window? Basically I'm just a bit lazy :oops: and always forget to right-click to open in new tab, so that I can keep this site open at the same time.

Like I said, teeny tiny....not a problem if not solvable!!

I noticed that too. Other sites I use always open a new window so I was a bit confused the first time it happened.

Maybe it's something to do with bandwidth? (not a geekie obviously)

What internet browser are you using? Firefox with mouse gestures is great for links opening in a new tab.

It is an add-on you can get with firefox so that an upward right button click movement brings things up in a new tab. sideways is back etc. its a fab add on.
