Weird Tab Behavior in Firefox
Is this a bug?
I was working on the TCF website, happily coding along, until I hit a snag: whenever I’d click on a link, it seems to be redirecting me back to the page I was on.
Okay, I shortly realized I was mistaken: I was actually not moving at all, and just staying where I was. What’s going on?, I thought. I clicked again. I realized the link was opening in a new tab… unless that page was already open in a tab. In that case, it wasn’t a new tab at all– it was the same tab, but not the one I was looking at. So when I clicked the link, if my Internet connection was fast enough, it looked like nothing happened!
The cause of this, I guess, is that my anchor tag for the link had this attribute:
The site no longer uses frames, but somehow it seemed that this target was referring to a tab open in Firefox. Weird stuff!
Can anyone confirm or deny?
