[apple]-clicking on a link in a image-map should force the link to open  in a
new window. instead, nothing happens.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. find a page with a image-map
2. [apple]-click on any link

Actual Results:  nothing

Expected Results:  link should open in a new window

regression issue -- works in 20011017

[ctrl]-clicking does what's supposed: brings up the context-menu
clicking normally works as usual.

NOTE to other platforms: the special-keys are different from other platforms,
which is normal behaviour

workaround : use [ctrl]-click and the context-menu

Am also seeing equivalent bad behavior in Windows 2000.  I have enabled the Open
in new Tab preference(the checkin of which probably caused this(but since I
consider open in new Window to be useless w/o the Open in new Tab pref please
don't back it out :))), and the equivalent to Apple-click is middle-click, but
when I middle click on an image map nothing happens.

Umm, since I don't think an example of an image map is necessarily trivial to
find, if you need an example look at the site navigation bar at the top of

Please provide a testcase. It would be helpful.

Upon accessing the URL Crump provided, I clicked on "About" and the link was correctly 
followed. When I command-clicked on the same link, the "About" area was briefly 
surrounded by a border, which was then replaced by a border around the entire map 
image. The link was neither followed (failure 1), nor was it opened in a new window 
(failure 2).

Confirming, revising Summary, and populating URL field.

The Severity is correct; the workaround is to use the contextual menu to open the link in 
a new window.
Ever confirmed: true
Summary: [apple]-click on image-map doesn't work → Command-click on a linked image map area fails to follow link

Just reporting that this bug appears to be fixed for me on Windows 2000 as of
Build 2001120108(though it may very well have been fixed earlier and I just
didn't notice.)
