So, I almost always open a question in a new tab by right clicking the question title. But, if a title only has MathJax, I can't do this. For example:

Are there unique solutions for $n=\sum_{j=1}^{g(k)} a_j^k$?

Right click it and you get various MathJax related options only. This is a small problem, but just thought I'd bring it up. Is it fixable?

By the way I'm using Firefox 9 something inside of Windows 7, in case that matters.

    This may depend on OS and Browser. On Firefox 8 on Linux, when I right click the MathJax'd hyperlink, I get the usual context menu over the MathJax menu. So I can in fact open in new tab/new window and what not, but not access the MathJax menu until I click elsewhere to get rid of the usual right-click menu. – Willie Wong Jan 30 '12 at 15:42
  • Previously on Meta: MathJax menu obliterates link menu when the entire link is LaTeX. I suggested that titles not be written entirely in TeX for exactly this reason. – Rahul Feb 1 '12 at 3:58

Maybe this is not the answer you want, but you should be able to still open the link in a new tab by middle clicking or Ctrl-clicking. See here. I'm on a Mac so I can't test this in your setup, but it looks legit.
