IE6 opening windows for links

I run WIN 98SE and IE6 (fully updated)

On some sites I visit left-clicking links within the site causes a window to open but the page does not display until I hit the STOP followed by REFRESH.

I've found that there is an alternative. Right-click on the link and pick OPEN from the context menu. This opens the linked page in the same window.

Is this a problem? Do I have some settings not quite right?
