    There is now an explanation on the feedback thread here: http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5535167

    Afraid its not good news - MSE have done this deliberately for security reasons. They are trying to find a fix but nothing is guaranteed.

    Technical question
    Sorry I'm not very good with computers, when I go on a link now it goes through to comp and replaces the mse page which I then have to reopen in a new window/page and do search again. It never use to do this, just use to open up competition on a new page/window so think its something to do with my settings but not sure how to change back to the way it was?

    Any help would be appreciated,thanks

    Forum is broken, it has been reported. Instead of clicking on the link, RIGHT CLICK it and select "Open in new tab", once you've entered the comp you can then just close the tab and MSE will still be open.

    Or if you're using a tablet, press and hold the link and an option to open in a new tab will pop up.
