Links withing tabbed pages not opening

I've got a strange one going on on my x64 machine. Within my tabbed pages, when I click on a link, they're highlighted but won't open. When I right click on the link and select "Open," it opens just fine. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

You could try to set default programs via the 4th option "...computer defaults" and spcifically say "Internet Explorer". If that doesn't work try a reset (Tools/Internet Optons/Advanced/Reset...)

I found it! I went to Tools>Internet Options>Privact Tab>Pop Up Blocker Setting. I simply added the tabbed website address and all was well again.

Thanks for your replies!

What is the quickest way to save links to web pages
When I want to save a link to a web page, I open a 'word document' and use the 'copy' and 'paste' or Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V method to save it. I save hundreds of links this way. Is there a better way, a more efficient and faster method of doing this? Thank you
