Ctrl-click to open links in a new window

When I ctrl-click on a link to open it in a new tab (for example, when going down a list of search results), it no longer opens in a new tab and instead seems to use Javascript to load it in to the current window. This is in both Firefox and Chrome.

Ctrl-clicking still seems to work in some places, like in the activity feed, but not in others - e.g. when viewing an issue, or a list of search results.

Is it possible to restore the old behaviour somehow?

This is a bug, currently awaiting deployment: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-32013

Although JIRA 5.2.5 currently does not have this problem.
