    A friend came by about 3 weeks ago and attempted to show me the proper way to use tabbing in IE8. After he left, I noticed a difference in the process to connect to links within web pages that I'd never experienced before. He lives overseas and is hard to contact.

    When in my browser, I have always left-clicked to go to a linked site. That works just fine; however, when I am in a webpage with embedded links, I can sometimes left click to go to the site of some of those links, but find that for other embedded links, I must rigt click and choose "open link" or "open link in new tab" or "open link in new page".

    I've never had to right click to go to a link within any web page.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.
