    you can use javascript to open in new tab and redirect from javasript instead of action attribute – Himanshu Mar 2 '16 at 16:40

Overriding standard buttons with Visualforce pages would not help in opening pages in new tab.

You would have to create new custom button, with

  • Display Type: Detail page button
  • Behaviour: Execute Javascript

and you could put some code like this:

window.open("../apex/yourCustomPage?id={! Account.Id }", "_blank")

Modify the page layouts required and replace standard edit button with custom one.
