    hello

    i have noticed that using middle click to open threads in new tabs does not work. right-click>open in new tab still works as it should.

    all other links around gbatemp work, it is just links to threads from the board index. it works if you click on them from the forum homepage, but not if you actually go into the board.

    i am using google chrome version 9.0.597.98 on windows 7 home premium 64-bit

    Use the right mouse button and click on: open in New Tab.

    Less practical but it works

    works in firefox

    but that isn't really the point of the topic. i'm reporting the bug happening in chrome, not firefox

    i'll try deleting the cache etc.

    EDIT: did so, problem still occurs

    I also have this issue, have for quite a while. I reported it ages ago and everyone just said it didn't happen to them and nobody seemed to card. I have noticed that middle clicking links from the "View New Posts" page works.

    Seems it has something to do with it being a span instead of a normal anchor?

    Yeah, middle clicking doesn't seem to work here either.
    Ctrl+Click seems to work though.

    I've never heard of problems with anchors in span tags, though it does seem to be the problem.

    Hm, so it doesn't.

    I don't remember if I saw that happen before or not.

    Doesn't work for me either, but I always click the 'go to first unread post' arrow, and it works with that.

    I don't know how long this has been happening for (it's been a while), but it's certainly irritating. I'm using regular Chrome with the same issue. C'est la vie, Costello always fixes these things eventually. [​IMG]

    same here, been annoying when i click and then nothing happens [​IMG]

    i hate having to hold ctrl just to open in a new tab (and i'm not gonna right click, that's one click that doesn't need to happen)

    Thanks for the Ctrl+Click tip people, that should help in the mean time. FYI, I'm on the latest Dev release (11.0.672.2 (Official Build 75134) dev).
