Isome web pages (college sites) do not bring up a new tab when
one clicks on a link.
Right clicking the link does not give the option for a new tab either.
Most probably you're encountering a fake link (something which looks
like a link but it really isn't) which only purpose is to execute a
script (which might open a link on its own), therefore no "Open Link
in New Tab" option is available. This is more a content authoring
problem and not a SeaMonkey one. IIRC there's an ongoing work to
make it possible for such elements to execute in a new tab.
