Hold the CTRL key while clicking the link. Some sites, particularly this forum, tend to ignore the setting to put links on a new tab.

The reason I am asking this is because I have created what I call a "login page" that looks like this:
<div>
</form>
<form id="login" form name="login" method="POST" action="website" target="_blank">
<input type="hidden" type="text" name="username" value="username" />
<input type="hidden" type="password" name="password" value="password" />
<input type="submit" value="Login to website" >
<br class="clearAll" />
</form>
</div>
When I click the button in IE it used open a new tab and log me in.
Somehow without me changing the html or the settings in IE it now opens in a new window.
It is really annoying how it opens in a new windows not a new tab.
