    Seems fine here. Using latest Firefox...
    Sure you're not accidentally middle-clicking on the links?

    Been happening to me for a while now
    Multiple browsers
    Definitely not accidentally middle clicking
    As that's set to go back a page
    Gave up trying to fix it
    Taking the it's probably their end approach so not going
    To spend hours trying to fix something I
    May not be able to regardless

    We should use one of the other competing online auction sites that everyone knows about.

    Oh wait, it's a pretty much a monopoly.
