...is there anyway I can make it so when I click a link, it opens to a new window?
The way it is right now, I always end up accidently closing out Firefox.
Links currently do not open a new window or tab. If you want to do this, there are a number of ways, depending on the browser you're using. On Windows, usually control-click will open a new window/tab. On a Mac, Apple-click. Hope this helps.
Every other site I go to, if I click a link, it opens to a new window automatically.
When I click a link on Epic, once Im done reading it or whatever, out of habit I X it out and end up closing Firefox.
I thought there might be some option to make links open in a new window....
It is up to you to use the Control-click or Apple-click to do that.
Most other modern sites behave this way, such as Facebook, CNN, Wikipedia, and so on. Forum sites using older forum software do not, and force the opening of a new window. Newer forum software changes this behavior. We've been discussing options for this, but at the moment, EpicSki complies with the more modern behavior and allows you to stay in the same window or choose to open a new one at your discretion.
