For example clicking this link: http://freecodecamp.com opens a new tab (as it should).

But this one doesn’t .

Does anyone else have this problem, or am I the only one?


#2

Yeah, it’s the same for me. I never noticed until now, because I tend to open all links in a new tab as a force of habit.


#3

Are there more people who can check if they have this problem?


#4

Yes, same for me.

If you are not logged in both links open in the same tab.


#5

Glad I am not the only one. Opening in a new tab is a user setting, so logged out it should open in the same tab.


#6

I am logged in, but both open in my current tab.

Personally I prefer a link to open in the current tab 99% of the time. I’ll ctrl-click if I want it to spring to a new tab :slight_smile:

(i.e. I probably changed the settings myself, if that option is available :))

Well you learn something new everyday :slight_smile:

You can also use “scroll wheel” click :slight_smile:

I want to boot up my old and slow computer just to try that!
