New window not wanted January 21, 2003 2:03 PM   Subscribe

Clicking on "Metafilter" on my userpage ("X comments to Metafilter") opens the site in a new window.

Not for me it doesn't. *shrugs*

Does the same for me...viewing source, the anchor tag looks like: <a href="/">Metafilter</a>

Perhaps it needs a target="_self" (like the Metatalk tag below it has)? Otherwise, I believe the anchors on the site are set to open links up in a new window by default.

Hmm...well, I'm using IE 6 on Windows XP, if that helps. I tried it on Mozilla but couldn't tell if it was doing it or not (the behavior was weird). It doesn't do this when I click on "Metatalk" on the same page, and never used to do it on "Metafilter" until the recent problems/changes.

Fixed, thank for catching it.
