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.
