Post subject:  links in posts in same window

When I click a link in a post, on the old forum it used to open a new browser window and open the link in there, keeping me on warpshadow in the meantime in the original window.
Now, whenever I click a link, the link is opened in the current browser window, navigating me away from warpshadow (and why would anyone want that?)

"Compared to phpBB3, links in phpBB2 had a slightly different behaviour: When you clicked them, they opened a new window with the requested page. This was changed in phpBB3 for a couple of reasons, but one of the most important ones was the goal to achieve XHTML 1.0 Strict-validation for the whole board."
