Links not opening in new window

It used to be that if people included links in their posts, when you clicked on it, it opened in a new tab/window. Now it just opens in the original one, so that by the time you've looked around the linked site, it takes a great very many back-clicks to get back to the thread you are reading. It's also a pain if you're comparing several links people have included in the same thread.

(I know you can control-click and select a new tab each time, but it was much easier when it happened automatically, and I don't know why it changed or whether it was intentional).

Hi RunAwayHome - sorry for taking a little while to get to your thread.
We're glad this looks like it's sorted itself out.

Please do shout if you have any further problems.

actually it's not working everywhere; it seems to depend on which forum or perhaps which threads. (e.g., thread in chat at the moment, with alternatives to Amazon - opens in the same window; whereas one of the education threads was opening them in a new window. The links look the same on the screen).

Hello there

Can we check what browser you are using?

Firefox, on a Mac.

It's been fine up until now, and it is fine in some of the threads, but not others.
