As the title suggests I would love it if, when you click on a discussion link off the home page it opened them in tabs and not in new windows, as multiple windows is just plain annoying in this day and age.  This happens for me on all browsers I use (Chrome/IE8/Firefox) whereas most sites open as new tabs.  I'm hoping it would be a simple change, and maybe an option to change between the two could work to take into account older browsers?

PS: I have searched for an option to see if it was already there but I couldn't find one.

I believe this is actually setting in your browser? 'Open new windows in tabs' or something like that?

This is a browser specific feature in your settings.  See below for an example of this in Safari:

Oh well guess its an issue at my end, though as said before all other websites seem to work.

A mod can delete this thread if they want.

Have you checked your browser settings for the options?

Yes. Should be opening as tabs like everything else is. I assumed it was something to do with this site but guess not.

There isn't an option to open links in tab. Web pages can open links on same pages or new windows. It's the browser's configuration that dictates what happens when a new page is created.

Well only thing I haven't tried is a re install of the browsers so might give that a go tonight. But at least I can dismiss this site as the issue now.
