Open in new window, not tabs

Everywhere I look people are moaning that links open in windows not tabs but I've the opposite problem. I enter competitions from a specialist portal which lists them. I want to open several of the links in separate windows at a time but they are coming up in tabs. I've found the tabbed browsing settings and the box is ticked to open links in a new window but I still find them opening tabs.
