Open Link in New Tab

Go to solution

I get regular emails from a site I have subscribed to which consist of several links to articles I might be interested in. Until a few days ago, when I clicked on a link it automatically opened in a new tab. When I closed that tab, my computer went back to the list of links -- easy, simple. A few days ago the links started to open on the email tab. If I closed it I would have to re-open my email page. If I remember not to do that but use the arrow to go back to the previous page, i.e. my email page, it has to re-open my email page, which can take quite a while -- not minutes, but many seconds. I know if I remember to right-click on the link, I can tell 'it' to 'Open Link in New Tab', but remembering is not my strong suit. How can I get it back to opening in a new tab automatically? Is it something to do with BT or is it something to do with the website that sends the list of links?

Thanks

I see I'm not the only one to have found this problem. [I never try to see if my question has been asked before as it usually hasn't, and I'm afraid that I won't use the right keywords, so wasting time.] One of the solutions was to click on the centre wheel. I tried that and it worked. I never knew that the scroll wheel could be clicked! But it will take a while to get used to doing that automatically.  Some people (answering the earlier question) said it was a BT thing, others said it was a browser thing -- swiftly denied by others.  Whatever the cause, is there any way I can go into settings and get it back as it used to be?
