Steps to reproduce

Currently trying to port an extension to edge. All of this works perfectly in Chrome and Firefox.

When I try to make a link to an extension page e.g. <a href="import.html" target="_blank"> it just won’t open and silently fails. You can right click and copy the link just fine.

Example link in the extension I uploaded is under the gear at the top left -> Export / Import -> Import Backup
