Currently, when you point at a link, the Mozilla mouse pointer changes from a generic pointer to a link pointer. There is not, however, any differentiation between regular links and links which will open a new window. So, I would like to suggest that Mozilla use an alternate link pointer when you point at a link which will open a new window. (FYI - When you click SEARCH on the Mozilla bug-search page, it also opens a new window, but I don't think this is a good example of my enhancement request since form buttons don't cause the link pointer to appear.)
Whoa, good idea!

The basic problem is to indicate whether or not a link will open in a new window, before the user clicks the link. This bug and bug 14027 suggest different implementations; I've resummarized bug 14027 to be non-implementation-specific, and I'll mark this as a dup since these two bugs will either be mutually exclusive or will be resolved at the same time. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 14027 ***
