Force javascript to open a new window?

Is there a way to force a javascipt link to open in a new window/tab?

So I'm using a site (someone elses) where the properties of the next page button includes "Address: javascript:TurnPage('next');" & "Will open in: Same window".

Is there a way to force this button/link to open the next page in a new window or tab in firefox?

When I right click I don't get the option.

you can probably write a Greasemonkey script to fix this.

A specific example (e.g. URL) would help for giving advice.

Probably not. Javascript functions rely on the page contents to do their magic. Firefox would be mildly broken if middle click on a javascript link duplicated the page and ran that function.

If you can't do it forward, maybe you can do it backward, i.e. you could clone the current window to a new tab, then click.
