Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.):
Step 1: type the name of an organism in the identify field
Step 2: click the “View” link to the right of any listed organism in the drop-down list
Step 3: it used to be that this would select that organism for the identify field, and open a new web tab with the taxon page. Recently this changed, and now it clears the identify field and opens a new web tab with the taxon page.
The old behavior was really useful and something I did many times a day, as I would think I knew what taxon I wanted to identify, but don’t trust my memory so would quickly look at the taxon page to verify some aspect of this (usually the range or an obscure field mark) before making my identification. With the new behavior, I have to type the name twice. Was this change intentional, or accidental?
