Only on the website listed above: Cntrl-click in a link and the link is opened in a new tab (correct). BUT the link is followed and the same content displayed in the original tab (incorrct). Using the middle mouse button rather than cntrl-click works correctly. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Go to http://www.fortmoe.com/forum/index.php 2.Cntr-click on "Fort Moe Arms Forum" 3.Original tab also displays content of following the link. Expected Results: Original tab unchanged, new tab opened displaying content of having followed the link.
<td class="row1" height="50" width="100%" onclick="window.location.href='viewforum.php?f=15'" onmouseout="this.style.backgroundColor=""" onmouseover="this.style.backgroundColor="808080"" style=""> <span class="forumlink"> <a class="forumlink" href="viewforum.php?f=15">Fort Moe Arms Forum</a> <br/> </span> CTRL+click opens the link in a new tab and then the event bubbles to <td> which acts on it in its 'onclick' handler, right? FWIW, Opera and Safari have the same behaviour.
Yikes. The site should use display:block for the link instead of using onclick to fake some (but not many) of the behaviors of a link in the part of the table cell not occupied by the forum name text. A fix for bug 151142 would take care of this, while a fix for bug 55696 / bug 251137 alone might kinda make it worse.
