CTRL+Shift+click on link does not work anymore
I am on the stable version 42.0.2393.85, windows 8.1 64-bit.
Today I found that pressing the CTRL+Shift combination & click on a link, which should open the link in a new tab and put that tab in focus, does not work anymore. Instead I get a spinning circle at the link but nothing else happens.
CTRL+click works: open the link in a new tab but does not bring the tab in focus.
