"Open links in new tab" does not work from Profile page without http


(TechnoBear) #1

I have always had my preferences set to open links in new tab, so this is not an issue with changing preferences.

Clicking an external link from within a topic does, indeed, open the link in a new tab. Clicking the same link from the post within a member’s profile does not; it opens in the same tab. (Firefox 35 and Chromium 40 on Ubuntu Gnome 14.10.)

Example:
Visit the link in this post (will open in new tab)

Then find that post in my profile and click the link from the profile page - it will open in the same tab.

However, this does not seem to be the case with links which start with http, which open correctly in a new tab.

For example:

I clicked both and both open in a new tab (I have the ‘open links in new tab’ setting turned on).

I can’t repro but just means my specific set up isn’t affected. Specific set up being Chrome Version 40.0.2214.115 m on Windows 8.1.

Thanks for testing. Problem exists for me both here and on SitePoint - and in both places my preferences are set the same way.
