    360 Link: Links Don't Open in a New Browser Window

    • Product: 360 Link

    Why does my link not open in a new window?

    Your browser may not be set up to open the links in a new window. Please check your browser settings and confirm the following:

    For Firefox:

    • Select Tools > Options.
    • Click on the Tabs tab.
    • Check "Open new windows in a new tab instead"
    • You may want to check "When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately"


    For Internet Explorer:

    • Select Tools > Internet Options
    • Click on the Advanced tab
    • Under Browsing, the option "Reuse windows for launching shortcuts" should not be checked.


    For Safari:

    • Select Settings > Preferences
    • Click on the Tabs tab
    • Set "Open pages in tabs instead of windows" to Always


    Clicking on the database links on the search page will continue to open them in a new window, and enhancement requests have been submitted to change the database-level links functionality. The journal-level links, though, should open in a new window. Let us know if you continue to have problems.
