I use the middle mouse button to open links in new tabs and to close tabs.
But sometimes, clicking the middle mouse button opens links in the current tab instead of in a new tab. It's not random - I noticed it usually happens when I click on popup links - such as thumbnails or links that open an image in a popup window (just like here).
I checked and this problem doesn't exist in Firefox (14.0.1).
My Google Chrome version is 22.0.1229.94.
Why does that happen?
Can I force the middle mouse button click to always open links/images in a new tab?
