Confluence spaces or Jira Dashboard links default open in new window

When we create a URL link in Confluence space or Jira dashboard is there a way to make the default open in a new tab/window rather than got directly to the window and lose the JIRA/Confluence session? We can always use the back arrow but sometimes the session has expired.

(Insert link Confluence space etc)

There is a case on this. Vote on it to encourage Atlassian to fix.

The case also has a workaround.

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-11194

The macro code does not work. Is this inserted as code block?

<script>

AJS.toInit(function() {
  AJS.$("a").attr('target', "_blank");
});
</script>

You'd put that in an HTML macro.
