Opening Instagrams and Tweets in a new tab

Standard link URLs open in a new tab (yay ) but Instagram and Twitter links don't. That's inconvenient and sometimes cause an auto logoff.

Re: Opening Instagrams and Tweets in a new tab

Hey there,

Do you have an example of this? Maybe a thread?
We would like to do some testing and replicate this issue.

I just tested your example and it opened in a new tab for me, are you running off a phone/tablet?

I tested again after reading your posts and nope. It still opens in the current tab. I'm usually on a win7/FF Quantum setup as I am now. I'll test it later on another machine and on Android/FF.

Re: Opening Instagrams and Tweets in a new tab

Were you able to test the links on another computer/device @pov ? I tried clicking on the link using my MacBook Air using 3 different browsers (Chrome, Firefox and Safari) and the links opened in separate tabs for all browsers. I also tried on my iPhone, and a new tab opened as well. Curious if you had better luck on a different device/browser.
