I made a page of our commonly used links, and this message pops up when you click on a link. Is there any way to turn off this feature? It's really annoying.

Hello,

If you are testing this in preview mode, after that message it also asks do you want to open the link in a new window? If you select yes, it will open the link in a new tab. There is not a way to turn this off, it opens in a new window to avoid overriding your current window and erasing any unsaved content.

Yes - this occurs in the preview mode. Will it happen in the published mode as well?

No, it will not occur in published mode. This happens because in the preview mode, you are still in our editor system. Clicking a 3rd party link will take you out of our system, which is why it asks if you want to open it in a new window (not in the editor system).
