    I have a button on the page, by default, when I click, it's automatically leaving the current page and transfer to new page. Then if I set its Target = "_blank", it will open a new tab (Firefox) and switch to that new tab immediately.

    I would like to know how to set it so that it will open the new tab, but won't switch to that new tab and remain on the current page?

    Thanks All.

    Hi LamKhoa,

    I am not sure whether the mentioned scenario can be achieved, because tab opening and focusing are browser behaviors, that we do not have control over them.

    You may also find useful this and this forum threads where a discussion as well as some workarounds on the matter can be found.
