    When I click links to external pages here I get the page I clicked on, plus a another tab pops open with a blank page. It only happens here on TCF, no other places I visit. I assume it's something with Viglink, but I don't know. I'm running 32 bit IE9 on 64 bit Windows 7.

    I just loaded IE9 on a 64 bit Windows 7 machine and clicked a link in your sig. Only one new tab opened.

    I've noticed the same behavior... Vista with IE 8. I just installed IE 9 to see if it would fix it, but it didn't. I tried all the combinations of the pop-up options, but I'm left with a blank tab or window, and the link opens in the original tab. Sometimes I've seen the new page "hijack" the back-history and the back button is greyed out.

    I wonder if we go to the same porn sites. :)

    I have another 64 bit Windows 7 box with IE9 and it does not have this problem. It's something on this machine but I don't know what.
