This question 415 Error when posting JSON in Java with Jersey opened up in a new tab everytime I clicked on it from the home page, while the question that lies immediately after or the other 10 that I tried open in the same tab.

What's special about some questions? It seemed like it happened earlier too but I ignored it thinking I might have had the Ctrl pressed. So, happened multiple times and possibly with different question links. Using Chrome on Windows XP. Seems like a bug.

Nope, don't see that kind of behaviour here at all. – Martijn Pieters Dec 19 '12 at 16:45
Still happening. Everytime! – seeta Dec 19 '12 at 16:48
This is almost certainly a setting in your browser. I don't have Chrome here, so I can't point you to the correct setting. – Robert Harvey Dec 19 '12 at 16:49
Puzzled! Wonder what that setting could be that's able to treat two question links on the homepage differently. – seeta Dec 19 '12 at 16:50
If you're still interested, clicking ONLY on the Question link or the posted time has this odd behavior. I can still click on the Votes or Answers or the Views elements and see normal behavior. And, again, it's only this one particular question. – seeta Dec 19 '12 at 16:53

Multiple choices:

  • You have a browser extension randomly adding a target=_blank
  • You have a virus randomly adding a target=_blank (wut?)
  • Your ctrl key is broken. Or half-broken. This seems like the most correct guess.

You forgot to add that you can't be sure. – seeta Dec 19 '12 at 17:21
