When I click on a link to another Craftster thread within a thread it opens up a new window instead of a new tab in the window I am currently using. Maybe this isn't so much of an issue for those with a faster connection but for me it's a bit of a pain. Just a heads up in case there is some way (inclination) to change it to new tab instead.
Thanks!

Mine open in a new tab because of a setting in my browser. I use Firefox and if I go to preferences in the main menu, then tabs there is a place to tick "Open new windows in a new tab instead".

That's weird! You can always right click on a link and force it to open in a new tab if it's being naughty.

I do that but sometimes I forget, you know, and just click it. Just gotta remember! Where's that ginkgo biloba got to...

All of mine open in a new tab, and I'm using Firefox.  I didn't change any settings to make it do this, though... I suspect it came with that when I installed it.

On other websites, that don't have the "auto-open-in-new-tab" thing I click using the scroll wheel when I'm at work and on a desktop computer, or I ctrl-click when I'm at home and on my netbook.

Not sure if that helps you at all, though. ^_^

Yeah, if you middle click or ctrl-click it should open up in a new tab everytime.
