Seems that in spit of the fact I have FF set to open links in a new tab, the form software is overriding that. This is very annoying as I often have closed the tab after reading/viewing what the link took me to only to realise it was the same one as the thread I was currently reading. A real pain when the thread has a lot of pages and/or is buried several pages deep in the forum’s contents..
I agree! It’s very annoying! I’ve begun to right-click and select “Open in a new tab”, but sometimes I forget, and close it, then can’t find my way back. I give up, and wait for another email notice.
I think that is down to FF, not the forum software.
I don’t think so. The behavior of the old forums was to open links in a new window, which in FF with the open in new tabs option on, would take you to a new tab. The current behavior is to open in place, meaning no new tab. I think it is a function of the web site.
Crap, now I can’t log in to my account. I was in, but then I went to a different page and then it started asking me to log in. I did, but it cleared the user and password boxes, after putting check marks next to them, and asked me again...and it keeps doing that!
I can post, if I use the link in the email notice for new posts to get here.
