      Changed Steps to Reproduce

    • Edge team has investigated and issue is occurring because BuiltWith sets an href on their links, but also calls browser.windows.create() on each link when it’s clicked if link.target == “_blank”.  It is recommended to remove the hrefs and only use the browser.windows.create() call.
