I am having a strange problem. Every time I click on something on WP, a new tab opens up with the new page on it. I end up as a result with 10 WP tabs all lined up. Is this my computer playing up or is it happening to others?

You've not mentioned which browser you are using.

Sounds like you've got it set to "open links in a new tab".

It has stopped now. It was really weird, lasted only about 10 minutes, but all these WP tabs opened all over the place. I dont know what happened.

Glitch with your browser, most likely.

Probably. It was amusing, anyway, though I couldnt figure out which WP tabs I was using and which ones just appeared out of nowhere.

Your CTRL was perhaps stuck down. In Firefox if that key is down when a link is clicked it opens the link in another tab.

Thanks Tallyman. It is likely to have been the case...
