This always worked as expected, i.e. a new browser window opened with my link. I used this for informational content that was meant to be read without leaving my main application.
However, recently I noticed that in many browsers, notably IE and Chrome, this is treated as a "popup" and gets trapped by the user's popup blocker. Annoying! Plus, even if the user allows popups, the link opens ion a chromeless window, as a popup does.
What changed this behavior? Is there anything I can do to achieve the prior behavior?
FWIW, it seems Firefox and Safari still work as expected.
