I use the latest Google Chrome (Version 53.0.2785.143 (64-bit)) on a MAC running 10.9.5, but I don't think they have anything to do with the problem. In the past, if you clicked on an external link, the link would open in a new tab. Recently somebody here made a change and now clicking on the link does nothing. If you right click on the link and select open in a new tab or window, it appears like it is going to, but the tab closes as soon as it starts to get created. If you choose &quot;Open In Incognito&quot; window you can open the link. If you try to click on a link in Firefox 49.0.1, the link doesn't open. However, if you right click and ask for it to open in a new tab, it does work.
It appears to me that you recently changed the site code that deals with opening links and right clicks. You completely broke it in Chrome. Some change you made recently completely broke external links. They suck now. It was completely convenient to have the external link automatically open in a new tab when you clicked on it, not sure why that code had to change. Now you have to copy the external link and paste it into the address bar to open any external links inside of Chrome or use incognito windows. It's a recent problem in the last week or two weeks.
Someone needs to look into it. Thanks.
P.S. Obviously you have the right to serve ads, but Jesus christ every time you go to click on something on your site we get redirected. It keeps getting worse and worse. It doesn't hurt me because I know what you are doing and I can get around it, but you make people who aren't great with computers think your site is a total scam when they immediately start getting redirected to 5 other links. It's your choice, but it makes your site so un-user friendly.
Resisted User have no ads, now you are a Resisted So will get no ads, And about external link, i use Chrome and for me its works fine, i think something changed from your browser setting.
