Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

Use google sites and create new page. Use the list template, give it a name and location, and hit create. Next select the “Issue List” template. Hit Customize this list, and add a column of type URL and hit save. Now hit Add item. Give any value to each of the columns, but make sure the URL column has a valid URL. There are times where it doesn’t crash right after creating this column, so go ahead and close and reopen IE and reload the google sites page with your URL. Left mouse click the URL and IE should crash.

Expected Results:

When I click on anchors with target set to newly named tabs or _blank, etc., I expect a new tab to open. Instead IE crashes.

Actual Results:
