			<apex:commandlink action="{!redirect}" target="_blank">
				<apex:commandButton value="Open in New Tab"/>

Related list Button Edit/Delete/View is not working in VF Page on Service Cloud Console

If showHeader="false" in VF Page, the related list Button Edit/Delete/View won’t work on Service Cloud Console.
When showHeader is set to false, some important JS files needed for the service cloud console to function properly will not be loaded, and hence you may see some issues. It is recommended to leave showHeader as true while using in the service cloud console.
