Actually, that's precisely why children seem to be "better" with
new technology than many adults: they're not afraid to experiment
and see how stuff works. They're still in that learning phase of life
where experimentation is not scary.

Arising as unto a very phoenix from the ashes, it is I, Nano. Let me tell you tales of shadows, and of the underworld.

Yeah, I tried a couple of things, but whatever I did it's still the same-page phenomenon.

Yeah, Nano, I'm looking through the Internet Options in IE, and I'm
not seeing anything useful. Your best bet is probably to hold down
the control key when clicking on a link that you want to open in a
new tab.

I don't think that's so. Firefox doesn't act the same as it used to, either
(without plugins to force it to). The board used to specify external links
with the anchor tag's "target" set to something besides "_top" so that
the links would come up in a new window (which the browser would redir
to a new tab instead). But now the board is showing links with no "target"
attribute:

Code:
<a class="postlink" href="http://somesite">Hey, click me!</a>


If you wanted it in a new tab/window, the board would need this kind of link:

Code:
<a target="_blank" href="http://somesite">I open a new tab or window.</a>


IE and Firefox are not designed to open non-targetted links in a new tab.
And if you could set them to do so, every time you opened a topic on this
forum, it would come up in a new tab, because those links are untargetted,
too.


EDIT: In fact, this page seems to suggest that it's a different default from
phpBB2, and that you can change the phpBB code to change the behavior:
