If I recall correctly, links in posts on FT opened in a new window, so you could take a "side trip" to visit the linked site and come back to where you were, or continue with what you were doing and visit the linked site when convenient. It seems as though on this site, if you click a link in a post it automatically takes you from where you are to the linked site. If you close the linked site, you do not return to where you came from; rather you must go "back" if you want to go to the original page or start all over. To me it's much more convenient (and user-friendly) to have the link open in a new window or new tab. Could we consider trying that for a while, please?
