If I follow the link in the answer to this question, it closes the current tab and opens the link in a new tab. This is with the current version of Firefox.

What is the best time to implement Multiplayer system?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Hm.... I'm not able to reproduce this in Firefox 76.0 / 76.0.1 or in Chrome 81.0.4044.138, both 64-bit on Windows 10. The link opens in the same tab for me, and my back button lets me return to the answer. \$\endgroup\$ – DMGregory May 8 '20 at 14:22
  • \$\begingroup\$ No, the back button is grayed out. "Undo close tab" restores the GDSE tab, leaving the Steam tab open. \$\endgroup\$ – Almo May 8 '20 at 14:25

The Firefox extension "Facebook Container" causes this behavior. So there's no issue with the site itself, I don't think.

    \$\begingroup\$ I remembered that in the right click menu it's not "open in new tab" it's "open in new Facebook tab" referring to that plugin. I thought then that maybe that plugin was causing the issue. So I turned it off, and the problem was fixed. \$\endgroup\$ – Almo May 8 '20 at 15:21
