I'm having a problem with FF 3.0*. When I put a link in with the target = 'blank' option it will open the first link in a new tab, but after that it opens all other links in that same second tab. Does anyone know of a way around this? I know you can change your options in FF to open in a new window, but I want it to work for the users that are smart and use tab based browsing.

Are you using "blank" or
target="[b]_blank[/b]"
(note the underscore)? If the former, then you are opening a new window with the name "blank", and all links to that name will open in the same window.
