I wonder if anything can be done about these problems (which may in fact be a problem of my computer).

1. Blue Board: I searched for an agency and turns out there are 3 entries, and to read/enter ratings I clicked into each in turn. But each time I 'returned' I had to start all over again, enter country, enter name, open page, etc.

2. Feelancer: Searching for freelancers, the same happened, whenever I entered a profile then 'returned', the page was not available, so I had to start the search process all over again, from the beginning, for each freelancer profile I wanted to vist.

Wouldn't it be possible to have the profiles of agencies and translators open as a new window? And also the Forum and KudoZ (when contributing, I sometimes want to have open 2 windows, one for my answer, and one to refer back to the previous postings).

Thanks:-)

Having the settings disappear when using search is indeed annoying.

As a workaround - depending which browser you use, but usually when right-clicking the link you should have an option to "open in new window". Certainly in Mozzilla it is possible and I use this most of the time (unless I automatically click the left button...)

'Open in new window' is the solution Feb 10, 2005

Hi Ailish,
I believe the 'workaround' suggested by Magda is, in fact, the solution, as it leaves you a choice of working with several windows or 'clicking through'.

I regularly use the context menu - works a charm.

Best regards,
Ralf
