Google Chrome blocks links opened in new tab

From the limited research I have done, this appears to be an issue with the latest Chrome update. Some have said it is an issue with the Ghostery extension, and when it is disabled functions as "normal". However many (myself included) do NOT have Ghostery installed and are still having the issue, although not on every link. Unfortunately, without allowing ALL pop-ups, I haven't found a resolution other than right-clicking on the link and selecting "open in new tab". This seems to mostly work. Suspect just have to wait until they get it fixed and issue a new update.
