###Description of issue
An external link counter CTRL+LMB ( left mouse button) will not open link in new tab and will increase the counter by one on each click while the CTRL button is down.
Instruction to reproduce
press down the control button on the keyboard and use the mouse left button and click on the gray circle next to external link.
Expected behavior: assuming that the external counter is part of the clickable link when using ctrl+LMB the link should open in a new tab.
-2. counter increase when user right click on counter or associated link, multiple times
this can make sense if the user is using the context menu to open tab, so this might not be an issue per say.
but counter should probably only increase once as long as the user is on the page.
