It appears that the latest update to Chrome dislikes the tab-napping protection feature and flags all external links opening in a new window as bad popups and blocks them. It must see such links as “abusive” (their words not mine). I confirmed this on 3 separate websites.
Turn off tab-napping feature and the problem goes away.
This is very very serious: nobody I spoke to realised the links were blocked as popups, they just thought that they weren’t working: could cause a lot of lost business for some sites. As I say, just turn it off, but maybe this feature should be removed??? (And Google should be called out for what they really are as well if you ask me)
Keep up the good work, thanks,
