Steps to reproduce

  1. Go to this page: https://www.cnet.com/products/apple-imac-with-4k-retina-display-21-5-inch-2015/prices/

  2. Click on the “See It” button for Abt.

  3. The browser will open a new tab but fail to load the page.

From investigating this I’m almost certain that there is a 1300 character limit on the url when an anchor tag has target="_blank" on it. I’ve removed characters from the url until it meets the 1300 character limit and it works fine.

The url works fine if target="_blank" is removed or if you manually right click -> open in a new tab.
