Small forum annoyance


#1

So I like to open up threads in new tabs, read them, and close them. Most of the time, I just use the center (scroll) button on my mouse. However, on this (the YYE) forum, whenever I center-click a thread on the forums, I’ll get a new tab with the link I’m going to, and the current tab will also change to the link I want to go to. This doesn’t happen on other forums, only this one, and it’s kind of annoying to have 2 tabs of the same page open whenever I center click. Has anyone else had this problem with the forum before?


#2

Doesn’t do that for me. If I center click on a topic, it opens the topic in a new tab and leaves the existing tab where it was.

I’m using firefox on linux.


#3

I have a mac so I don’t have clicky problems.


#4

I think it might just be a problem with google chrome.


#5

I’m using google chrome, and no problems.


#6

I’m using Google Chrome, one on an XP machine and one on a W7 machine. Both have this problem =P


#7

I’m using google chrome and XP, so I don’t think that it’s a problem with either of those.


#8

Huh? This happens to me at home with Ubuntu 11.04 and Chrome…

But here I’m using Vista(ugh don’t get me started…) and Internet Explorer(aka Internet Exploder :P) and it works just fine.

But then again I’m so used to the right clicking method it’s about as fast as middle clicking anyways.

High five for Linux!

Ctrl + Click

So this only seems to happen in Chrome, not Firefox.

Oh, and I did ctrl+click on Chrome. Same new tab + old tab changes pages thing going on as well.

I use ie at work and no problem, I use firefox, and chrome at home and have no problem. I use a mac sometimes and other then it being differnt in annoying ways for me, I also don’t have a problem. It must be on your end buddy.


#12

Maybe it’s a problem with Windows 7?

I’m using XP, and no matter what browser I use, it works fine.

I can tell you that it’s not 7 either. Maybe you need to set it up to do what you want other than hoping it will just do it for you.
