Try holding the shift button down while clicking on a link. A Guy

Windows 7 Professional, 32-bit, Service Pack 1

Ok, I now also realized that Google Chrome also just makes a new tab when opening a hyperlink. So neither in Firefox, nor in Google Chrome I lost the previous website when opening a hyperlink.

And I even start liking this better, having new tabs instead of new windows. It's like in Adobe Software, every new file is just a new tab.

So, at this point I do not need to know how to make hyperlinks open in a new window for Google Chrome. (Holding the shift key does not work.)

Thanks for all your supports.
