Can't Ctrl+Click My Threads to open in new tab (Chrome)

    Question

  • Today I find that I can't Ctrl+Click "My Threads" or "My Forums Threads" or "My Profile"  (any of those options in the Quick Access menu) to open it in a new window in Chrome.  Right click and Open in new tab works fine, but the Ctrl+Click doesn't work.

    This is crippling.  Must be fixed.

  • Appears to be fixed today.  Thanks very much!

    Edit:  Ctrl+Click is fixed.  Middle click is not.

  • I'm seeing the same behavior in Firefox as well. I usually middle click to open new tabs, so I'm not sure how long this issue has been affecting Firefox.

    Personally, I do not use the navigation facilities of the forums. Rather, I have created browser bookmarks for individual forums, groups of forums, My Threads, My Profile, My Forums, My Settings... whatever. These will not be affected by the kind of issues you mention.

    Not to imply this is not a legitimate issue.

    The middle click to open on a new tab also fails with Chrome.

    Not fixed as far as the middle mouse button in Chrome goes.  It still opens on the original page where it used to open a new tab.
