Instead of hitting the "Run Layout" button, once you made any change in Construct 2, just reload the browser tab as if you are refreshing a normal page.

Mine does replace the tab when pressing run layout - what browser are you using ?

edit (21/04/14 08:40) - now I see that sometimes it does not replace the tab - but normally (9 times out of 10) it does

As far as I know (may be wrong) C2 doesn't determine which TAB the windows opens when a game previews - unless using the Browser plugin to open a URL - the browser does.

Have you got any browser addons? Try disabling them and retesting.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Set the browser to custom and then set the custom browser property to launch a script (the custom option doesn't support parameters) to run a bowser in a new window.

Edit. Actually I think I determined before the C2 passes the preview address as the first parameter I did something before check here - viewtopic.php?f=146&t=92303
