How to stop browser opening new tabs from links on Google News

I have noticed recently that when I click on a link from the Google Nnews page, it opens a new tab, regardless of what browser I'm using. I use Firefox, but the same happens with Chrome, Safari and the mobile version of Safari on my iPhone. I don't want a new tab to open as it's annoying, and as mentioned above, this is a recent Google phenomenon; it doesn't happen on Yahoo.

I have tried all the settings and preferences, so it looks like it's something Google has just added or modified.

Please note I'm not referring to opening new windows, just tabs.

Does anyone know how to stop this from happening?
