Description

The standard command to open a link in a new tab, ctrl-click in Windows (not sure about other platforms/browsers), doesn't work in the FreeNAS GUI. Please can it be made to work.

This is especially annoying when the link is to the docs page - you cannot just ctrl-click the "guide" links and view them in a new tab, keeping the main GUI open in the original tab. It simply forces it to open in the frame instead, even if you would prefer it in a separate tab or window for ease and to refer to it while managing the server.

I think a user who is running FreeNAS can be trusted to decide if they want links to open in a new tab/window instead of the same tab in a frame, overwriting the UI.

Please help me not to invoke GreaseMonkey, and change this to the usual behaviour, in the old + new UI codes :) (I tagged it as old UI, but it also impacts the new UI as well)

Thanks!
