action="page.php" in my form opens in new window, why?

P: 8
Okay so I have this form that I have made in order to post comments on a website, the form works fine when I send it to guernica.php for example but it opens it in a new page, I don't know why. Then to make things even more weird I have the guernica.php page automatically redirect to guernica.html and if you submit a form then have it redirect you back to that page and submit a new form it doesn't open in a new window. In other words only the first time you submit a comment does it open the guernica.php in a new window. Any ideas?

oh and here is the form code if that helps:

<form action="guernica.php" method="post">
Subject: <br><input type="text" name="subject" /><br>
Name: <br><input type="text" name="name" /><br>
Comments: <br><textarea input type="textarea" cols="50" rows="10" name="comments" /></textarea><br>
<input type="submit" value="Submit"/>
<input type="reset" />
