The Fuel Shortage Tracker is very difficult to use right now, because it doesn't allow you to shift-click or right click the detail links in order to open them up on a seperate browser window.

As a result, the map itself changes to the detail page, and when you hit Back to get back to the map, it doesn't remember the map view you had or the filter you had set, so you start back at defaults EVERY time.

It's extremely annoying and slows things down considerably.

Please fix this, ASAP.

Thanks, GM. I'm using Firefox. The shift right click works - I appreciate the workaround. I never use that, to be honest.

Pretty much every normal HTML link supports standard shift-clicking or normal right clicking. This is the first site I've ever seen that requires shift right clicking.

If it's a quick fix to support standard methods, it would still be nice if you did so, as it's faster to not have to navigate a context menu (when I'm loading 15 pages at a time, it matters).

Thanks!

I can't get the map markers (either square or teardrop) to do anything. Instructions would be nice.

I'm not sure what browser you are using but here is a list of suggestions for the Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari.

Chrome

- Control click opens a link new tab
- Shift click opens a link in a new window

Firefox

- Shift right click you have the option to open in either a new tab or new window

IE

- Control click opens a link new tab
- Shift click opens a link in a new window

Safari

- Control click opens a link new tab

All of these options are after you click on a flag and use the "View Details" link. If you have any more questions please let us know.
