Single Click Header Navigation not working

We're upgrading our JIRA 5.2 to 6.3. Everything's working, but the headers are no longer providing the single click functionality they did in the 5 series. That is, if I clicked the text of the Project (Dashboard/Issue/Agile board) drop down I would go to the last project (Dashboard/Issue/Agile board) I had visited without having to use the drop down menu at all.

When I hover over the text I see that it's still a link, and see the url it should be taking me to, but when I click the header it just toggles the drop-down menu. I can right click and open it in a new tab. I've tried this in Chrome/Firefox/IE to see if this was a browser setting. I believe what's happening is that there's some javascript preventing the default action of the click event, and am hoping there is a simple configuration that allows this feature to work again.

We have this problem too. After upgrading, my users are complaining that they need to use many more clicks than previously to accomplish basic tasks.
