open link in tab disgards TARGET attribute of A tag
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 On any link with a named target (A TARGET="FOO"), you can open it in a new tab instead of a new window. However, the next time you click on a link with the same TARGET attribute, it will open in a new window, not that already open tab (unless you force it to open in a new tab). It *should* just update the tab that was previously opened. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Make a page with two links, <a href="foo.html" target="target1">Foo</a> and <a href="bar.html" target="target1">Bar</a>. Notice that both links share the same TARGET attribute. 2. Open the "Foo" link in a new tab. 3. Left-click on the "Bar" link. Actual Results: You have your original browser window with the original page and a tab for foo.html as well as a new browser window for bar.html. Expected Results: It should have opened bar.html in the tab originally opened for foo.html. It is my opinion that the current behavior is incorrect, but I realize it may be that way on purpose and others may not share my opinion.
