As an example, I'll describe my experience this morning below:
I'm researching junk mail issues at a particular client. I searched for "junk" and brought up a long list of issues. Here's what I've been doing:
1. In the search results, find an issue that looks relevant: Issue #412
2. Click "View" for #412 and review it. Assuming the issue is indeed relevant, I want to keep it up on my screen:
3. Open new tab from random link on page (usually one under Views), so that the new tab contains a search field.
4. In new tab, search for #412.
5. In new tab's search results, click "View" for #412. Now it's open on my screen.
6. In original tab, click "Back" to return to search results to look for more issues
7. Repeat above steps with each relevant issue
If in step 2, I could open #412 in a new tab or window, I could skip steps 3-6.
On this form for commenting in Idea Exchange, I see the "Preview" and "Help" widgets are images, not real buttons, and Preview will open in a new tab (though it's a little buggy). Maybe that implementation could could be applied to other parts of TD?
