Opening topics in new tabs?


#1

Everything I try to open a topic in a new tab by either clicking with the middle button, or CTRL left click, it opens in a new tab, and in the current tab. Is there any way to open a topic in a new tab, without actually right clicking, then selecting it from the menu?

That’s how it works.


#3

On almost every site I have used clicking the middle button opens the object in a new tab, without opening it in the current tab as well. I had just wondered why it was different here?

I think what he’s saying is that it works just the way you describe it for him. It does for me too. When I do what you say it opens the object in a new tab w/o also opening it in the current tab. I’m using firefox 13.0.

It gets on my nerves a little too - I’m also curious as to why it does this (maybe it’s a Firefox thing…)


#6

I’m using chrome, and I noticed it doesn’t happen on the ‘recent unread posts’ list.


#7

Yeah I use Chrome and I find this quirk to be rather annoying.

I like to middle click about a dozen threads I am interested in reading and then close each one as I go thru the tabs. I am not able to use middle click for this practice and instead have to right click and then click open in a new tab.

Shouldnt be a hard fix.

That’s what I like to do. But if you go to the unread posts since last visit page, you can scrollwheel click multiple threads without them opening in your current tab.

i dont know about chrome, but in firefox you can just right click and click on open in a new tab…

I believe that is a setting you have to make in preferences. That may be the default setting.

It’s default in both. I use Chrome and Firefox right now, both have Right Click > Open Tab on by default.

…But the OP’s point was that some of us are just too lazy to have to Right Click > Open Tab every time we want to open a thread in a new tab. :stuck_out_tongue:

CTRL left click opens a topic in a new tab for me, leaving the current tab unchanged.


#13

Which browser are you using, in Chrome this still opens it in the current tab as well (for me at least)


#14

Firefox


#15

Happens in internet explorer as well

Works for me

Just want to say that this bug basically discourages me from reading this site a lot of the time. Even more so when I’m on my laptop and using browser plugins that let me navigate with keyboard only.


#18

I will agree that this is most annoying when using chrome


#19

Thats the case for me too - this is the only forum i’ve encountered with this “feature”


#20

bump still it’s still happening
