Pop-Up Links Opening in New Windows, Not New Tabs

  • Hey there, I'm running into an issue with Opera that has only seemed to crop up in the past week or so. Basically, when I use certain sites—particularly Getty Images, but also Google Analytics—I'll click on certain links and they used to previously open in new tabs when fullscreen, but in pop-up windows when not in full screen. But now, they open up in new windows in all cases, which is frustrating behavior, particularly on Getty Images. It doesn't appear to be a target="_blank" issue (Gmail links work fine for example), but an issue with links whose behavior is set with Javascript.

    Is there a way to prevent this behavior or revert it to what it did previously?
