But the new window has the post in it?  There is a setting to tell it to open new windows, new tabs etc. in both IE and Firefox.

I use Firefox and a while back something similar happened to me....if I tried to open a tab it would open up a new Firefox window rather than a tab.  I shut down Firefox and restarted...did away with the problem and I haven't had it since.  Sorry I can't help more than share that experience.

Best wishes,

Sure enough I had 4 objects found in the registry. Not sure what they were but my program showed them as little green bugs. Deleted them and everything is back to normal, no pop ups and no new windows.
