Sorry, man. Unfortunately, you can't. The phpBB devs hard-coded this behavior citing security or some such bullshit. I guess they didn't want people saying the software allowed direct linking to hazard sites, malware, etc.
All you need to do is click a forum link with your mouse's center button and a new tab will open in your browser window. It drove me nuts when I first started using it, but after a couple days you won't even notice it.
