The links in some of the notification bars are not middle-clickable ('open in background tab'). It works for the 'learn more' when gaining more privileges, but for example not the link to the FAQ for: "Welcome to Q&A for expert programmers interested in professional discussions on software development -- check out the FAQ!"

This is a usability bug.

    Would edit, don't have points yet. To my suprise, those aren't actually hyperlinks - they are <a> tags, yes, but without href. Definitely a usability bug - "we want you to left click, no matter what your browsing habits are". (not to mention that this form of a non-link hyperlink seems it was harder to program than an actual hyperlink; didn't it have the hyperlinks at one time?) – Piskvor left the building Nov 23 '10 at 18:36
  • Some messages have 'real' hyperlinks, others do not, which is really what confuses me most. – hheimbuerger Nov 24 '10 at 13:50

Good catch!

I changed it so we do both the JavaScript onclick and the href so both cases are covered.
