Question: Mail links open new windows in Chrome instead of new tabs

I have High Sierra running on a mid-2010 Macbook Pro, and Chrome 61.0.


Recently, when I click on a link in an email message, Chrome (which is my default browser) opens a new (blank) tab in a new window instead of opening the link in a new tab in the active window.


Since this is a relatively new occurrence and I haven't changed or done anything which should cause this behaviour, where should I look for the setting to ensure that links are not only opened but also opened in the correct place?

MacBook Pro, macOS High Sierra (10.13.2), Mail 11, Chrome 61

Answer:

I had to switch to Safari as my default browser, so it must be a Chrome issue.

It certainly appears to be. I took the opportunity to make Firefox my Default browser and don't have the problem. However, when I tried Bobthefisherman's advice and updated to the latest version of Chrome, I started getting display problems again (which I had last week until I deleted and reinstalled the OS and then restored everything from Time Machine.


Thanks for the suggestion.

I did that and ended up getting a previous problem back, where the graphics won't display correctly, which I had last week until I deleted and reinstalled the OS and then restored everything from Time Machine.


I guess that I am either going to have to try to reinstall an older version of Chrome or just using a different browser (gullygarden's suggestion).
