Creating a new tab

Recommended Posts

MRMO88

I seem to be having issues opening a topic in a new tab. On other websites I can hold Crtl and left click as normal. However when i do it on gtaforums.com it creates a new tab but also uses the tab I'm in to open the selected topic. 

 

Sure this worked properly before the changeover. 

Cheers

Have you guys tried using the mouse itself instead of keyboard and mouse?

 

When I right click and select open in new tab a new tab opens with the new topic in it...

Links in comments work fine, but it's the other things that don't work right. Like I said in the Support Forum I linked, it's forums, sub forums and topics that have this issue. I may have missed some others but that's the ones I noticed.

 

It does it in Chrome and Firefox.

 

 

Middle mouse click seems to work normally.

Ahhhh Okay I see what you mean now, Yeah I just went to the general chat section and tried it using CTRL + Left Click and it opened a new tab with the topic it also opened the topic on the same tab.

 

But like you pointed out using the Middle Button/Scroller works and so does the method I pointed out right clicking and selecting open new tab which is the way I've always done it personally so until they get it fixed you'll have to use

 

Right Click > Open In New Tab

 

or

 

Click Using Center Mouse Button aka Scroller Button

This is part of a known bug where clicking secondary links within a topic "box" will just redirect you to the main link. Middle mouse button will work fine.

Right clicking and clicking open new tab works fine it's Holding CTRL and then left clicking on the link that is causing the issue

Wondered what was going on...it's pretty annoying. Also, I haven't seen a middle mouse button since 1999.
