Two windows or tabs

Postby everchnginggrden » Mar 26, 2009 9:59 am

Hi -- for the past couple of days when I click on a link it opens the link in two new tabs. Anyone else having this problem or is it on my end?

nope. I can open Canadian Gardening & go through the index, but if anyone has a link posted & I click it opens in two new tabs. This is the only site that does that for me. Very weird.

Please provide an example so that we can also look into the issue.... Thanks.

It's happening for me too.When I click on a link posted in a message, it opens in two tabs. I tried it out on several examples.

Ok, let me try this again....

Does this link open two windows?

Or does this link open two windows?

Or both?

William, for me both your examples only opened one tab each.

But by contrast in Plant Talk, in the thread called 'Is there a plant called silver bells', Eeyore includes a link in her reply which when I clicked on opened two tabs. Does that help?

I went back and checked my link and what I get is one new window and a blocked pop-up.
Do you get 2 of the same windows or 2 different windows?

Lyn, it opens two identical tabs. I had noticed it happening before, but didn't pay attention until Sharon commented on it.

Very odd, I wonder if it's a script error on particular sites..... :?
