Cmd/Click to open a sub-forum/topic in a new tab has stopped working on this site. I noticed it a couple of days ago. Ctrl/Click still opens the contextual menu to choose "Open in new tab" option, but Cmd/Click doesn't work.

This is the only Forum site that I visit where this doesn't work. Is it a site problem?

Mid 2012 MBP, El Capitan, Safari 10.0

L2014 Mac mini, macOS Sierra, Safari 10.0.1

Just so we 100% understand what's going on.

- Mac-Forums Homepage
- Depress the command key (4-leaf clover key)
- Click on the desired sub-forum topic

Desired result is open that sub-forum topic in a new browser tab.

If this is correct. Still works fine on my end.:)

@MightyGem

Someone posted a thread about this recently, I contributed to it confirming what you say and the OP discovered the answer - at least it solved it for him/her and me:

We both used Ghostery. In Ghostery, remove this Forum from the Whitelist. That was pretty well it. The OP also stopped Adobe Dynamic Tag Man from being disabled, but I found that didn't seem to matter. Then reload the page. You might have to do this twice, for some reason; but then, all is restored to how it was.

I'll try to find the thread and post a link separately.

It is. This is the only site where it doesn't work.

Thanks, IWT, I don't use Ghostery and have no idea what Adobe Dynamic Tag Man is.

Actually, MightyGem, I very slightly misled you as I was quoting from memory.

This is what the OP, David, said:

"Well, the mystery is solved!

Turns out, the culprit is the "Adobe Tag Management (Beacons)" tracker.

Install Ghostery, don't whitelist this forum (sorry) - everything is as it should be.
Re-enable the tracker, reload forum page - exact same behaviour as described originally.
Tried half a dozen times - perfectly consistent.
Happy days."

Worth a try. I worked for him and me. BTW this only happens with Safari it seems - well, ok on FF and Chrome.

Using Opera browser, site white listed on Ghostery, Cmd + click works fine for me.
