I've noticed an issue a few times today but I'm not sure whether it's a Geekzone or browser issue (I did an update yesterday).

Sometimes when I middle-click a link to open it in a new tab, it also opens it in the current tab (so it loads twice). This doesn't happen every time, and doesn't seem to be isolated to any particular link. Has anyone else run into this?

Browser is Firefox 17.0.10.

Something similar to this happens to me sometimes when I click a link on my freshly opened homepage (yahoo.xtra) using Chrome. 
Except it doesn't open the second tab at all, instead it loads the link into the current tab. 
And usually, once I've opened a second tab via another means, it seems to 'fix' itself and not do it again.
Not sure why, most likely some form of ID 10 T error in my case o_O

I'm back at home now (Safari) so I'll post back if it happens again. I updated Firefox at work but didn't get a chance to click around GZ much.

We had someone complain about this on works website and they found it was some addon they had caused it to happen sometimes.

It's been happening with me on IE as well. Pretty annoying.

This just happened to me when clicking on a link within a GZ forum message. I use that latest version of Opera.

I haven't noticed this happen on any other website. It only seems to affect links on GZ to external sites.

It kinda looks like a weird interaction between Chrome and Linksmart to me from a quick look in the Chrome dev tools, haven't tested with addon's disabled though.
