New Windows

Web pages that helpfully open a new window when I click a link were quickly on their way to becoming my latest pet peeve (if I want a new window, I'll hold down the shift key). Opening new windows is a horrible way to keep users from leaving your site. Digg is one of many offenders. That is until I discovered that Firefox can force the links to open up in the same tab/window. You'll find the setting in the "Tabs" tab in the Firefox preferences.

Alternatively go your digg profile and change the "Opening Links to External Page" preference to "Never open in new window".
