Links Open to Blank Tabs

  • When I click a link that opens a new tab only a blank white page is displayed. I can see the new tab loading data but it never shows any content. This happens on any link I click that opens a new tab. If I copy the URL out of the address bar on the blank tab and then paste it into a new tab that I manually open, the page displays normally.

    This has been happening for the past few versions. I have tried disabling extensions and plug-ins (all two of them) and it didn't help. I am currently using 1.6.689.40 (Stable channel) (32-bit).

    @rlamos - a very few users have reported this. The developers and internal testers can't replicate it.

    Do you use any extensions?

  • @Ayespy For extensions, I have Cisco WebEx Extension 1.0.1. For plug-ins I have Widevine Content Decryption Module - Version: and the Chromium PDF viewer.

    After disabling all three, closing and re-opening the browser, then re-enabling and finally close/re-opening again the problem has stopped. I am hopeful, however the issue has stopped from time to time in the past.

  • @rlamos Well, that was short lived. Its back to doing it again. No changes since last post, just normal use.

  • @Ayespy I just noticed something that may also be interesting. The issue only happens if I left click a link that is going to open the new tab. If I right click that same link and select open in new tab, it works.

    @rlamos - please file a bug report with that exact info, and including some sample URLs containing the problem links.

  • It happens, somethimes, when oppening PDF files.

  • @Ayespy Reported.
