Description

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

  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.

Solution

No known solution.
