S60 5th Edition
In S60 5th Edition devices, the Browser Control interface does not open HTML links if the target attribute is "_blank." 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
1) Open any Web page via an HTML link, which opens the URL in a new window, using the Browser Control Interface.
2) 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.
No known solution.
