Links on Facebook opening on same tab

  • When I click ANYTHING in facebook it opens in the same tab so that I lose my place in the scroll. How do I go back to opening in a new tab?

  • @poky Clicking on links on Facebook here open the page o a new tab.

  • Could it be a problem related to Facebook site itself? When they change/update things in the site, it is not every profile that is affected.
    Anyway, did you try to hold Control (Ctrl) while clicking? It will force to open in a new tab.

  • @poky
    Clicking with the middle mouse button should open the link in a new tab too, if you have one (it's often the wheel if you have a wheel mouse).

  • @poky - Clicking on links on Facebook open the page in new tab here..

    Even tho when ya click link and it opens in the same tab.. if ya right click link.. do ya see the option *Open link in new tab.. *just ask 'n.. Does that happen in other Browsers..

    i've had bad profile once or twice that could be doing it..

    if i may ask what version of Opera.. and are ya running windows 7, 8. 10..

    the reason i ask is coz facebook links work fine here also leo said facebook works good..

    so maybe its a problem related outside of opera.. *just say 'n..
