Thanks for the response @michaelc!
The social links I am referring to are in the header. These are the only links that will not open in a new tab, all other social links work fine. I have already enabled “Open Social Links in New Tab” option found in Avada Theme Options >> Extra >> Miscellaneous >> Open Social Icons in a New Window. But it still will not open in a new tab.
I have combed through all of the options in the theme, but I have not found any solution.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
