So far it's been reported for Chrome, Firefox, IE and Opera; so it doesn't seem to be browser specific.

Yeah, still happening for me, although I've reverted Firefox back to the earlier version since the latest one has broken the ability to view PDFs from the document management system that we use here at work. I *think* I've had the problem at home in Safari too, but I'm not certain.

I think it's to do with how Geekzone handles links... when you choose your target as 'none' it treats a middle click the same as a normal left click, so it opens the link in the current tab as well as a new one. I always set the target to 'new window' when posting links and I don't think I get this issue with my own posts. This does mean that you can't open the link within the tab, but I never do that anyway!

I had this happening at home (FF), but thought it was my mouse. Just tested now at work (FF22), and I get the same issue with the ars link in this thread. Middle-clicking results in the link opening in new & current tab.
EDIT - not happening in IE10

Happening for me too, for the last few days, a little annoying when middle clicking links to view them in a new tab, trying to keep the current tab, but it redirects as well.
Both in Firefox 25, and Chrome 31

Test:

1. Google Link - Target=None

2. Google Link - Target=New window

For me link 1 causes the problem with middle mouse click, but link 2 works fine with middle mouse click.

Ragnor: 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.


Yep, Linksmart is doing it. 

I've just tested with the Ars badbios link earlier in the thread and you can see that Linksmart adds a mousedown handler on the link. 

It ignores right clicks (button == 2) but doesn't ignore middle clicks (button == 1):

F = function(a, c, n) {
    a = a || window.event;
    if (2 == a.button || c.getAttribute("data-ls-clicked"))
    return !0;


So then it eventually ends up setting the location of the current tab:

 window.location = c.href

Excellent detective work!  Give that man a cookie!

Good work, was going to look into it but forgot about it.

Just heard from Linksmart and it seems an update addressing this issue was released today... Could you folks experiencing this problem check and report?
