Browser Control Interface cannot open HTML links in new window (Known Issue)
S60 5th Edition
The Browser Control interface does not open HTML links if the target attribute is _blank, on S60 5th Edition devices. This attribute is used in HTML links which open the underlying URL in a new window. In S60 3rd Edition devices, this type of links are opened in the same window of the Browser Control interface. The other attributes of the target parameter (_self, _parent, _top) work as expected.
How to reproduce
- Open any Web page via an HTML link, which opens the URL in a new window, using the Browser Control Interface.
- Click on the link.
- Actual behaviour: Clicking on the link has no effect and the page is not loaded.
- Expected behaviour: The link's URL is opened in the same window of the Browser Control application.
