Hi all,

is there a way to configure Jira to open Pages from Links in Jira in a new Window (target_blank)?

Thanks for your support!

Ok thanks! I will go with the answer "No it cannot be set by default". Thanks!

No. But you can always do it yourself. :)

Also, you can also add a Javascript to the banner to manipulate the DOM.

System wide or with the right mouse button?

I think Timothy means the right mouse button.

Javascript hacking of the DOM will give you a global approach, but I'd recommend caution with it - you really don't want to open everything in a new window... Test carefully before putting it live.
