navigating wikitree

+1 vote
Is there a way to navigate around WikiTree without each page opening in a new window?  Having so many windows open at the same time does get very confusing.  I want to be able to use the browser back arrow to go back to the last page I was on.

Could you describe a little more what happens? - like what kind of navigation you are doing?

When I just browse around the family tree from profile to profile or from profile to family tree or descendant view I stay in the same window, same tab, unless I specifically choose to have a new tab or new window (by one of the right-click options). If this is the kind of navigation you are doing it may have to do with your browser settings or the device you are using.

When you are creating new profiles as relations to existing ones from the edit view you WILL get new windows/tabs, and yes, this can get confusing.

Janie, I think Eva is correct that what you are seeing would be a function of your browser settings, not something that is controlled by WikiTree.  In Firefox, for example, under the options menu you can choose to open links in a new tab (as opposed to the same window) by checking a box.  Take a look through your browser's settings and see if there is a way to tell it what you want.
