Opening the kontextmenu in the new page tree and selecting the "show" item opens the page in a new window in Firefox. This is ugly since I want a new tab.

In the 3rd frame on the right if i do the same in the docheader of the page, the page is still opening in a new tab as expected.

can this behavior in the page tree be changed please?

Is there really a way to influence this? Never heard of it.

Simon, maybe you can do some research, whether such a possiblity exists in JS. Maybe ExtJS really makes use of it (and it could be disabled).

Currently there is a simple window.open call used and I already tried to fix this. Would be great if someone knows a solution to fix this behaviour as I really dislike it too.

Closed in favor of #24916, which has a patch.
