    • I got the same think.

      I have a web page that has multiples links to download files with _blank target. The Edge browser is alone to have this problem. All others browsers, including IE, work normally.

      Thank you for your help.

    • @Marco F. - Keep in mind that i’m talking about extensións popup, not about webpages. target="_blank" in webpages is working for me.

    • This should be fixed in the public anniversary update that was released (build: 14393.10).  Can you double check that this is true and update us please?

      It would be most helpful if you could provide the exact extension that you are creating as well that you can see this with.
