I'm using Google Chrome Version 30.0.1599.10 dev. I was showing a friend how tags work when asking a question on Stack Overflow and typed in "php". When I clicked the "learn more" info link it did nothing. Is this a bug?

  • It works for me

    Beta/dev versions of browsers are not supported. Works fine in Chrome 28. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/56161/…

  • even on meta stackoverflow (sorry it doesn't do 'nothing', it closes the tag dropdown element) Aug 18, 2013 at 12:50
  • Try with a supported browser.

  • There is target="_blank" on the link so most likely you have popup blocker installed that is blocking the link. Disable it and you'll have it working and opening in new tab. Aug 18, 2013 at 12:54

    Reproduced in Chrome dev. Looks like it's a bug in Chrome, as I can fix the behaviour by doing something that should be a no-op. I'll poke at it a bit more to see if I can root out the cause, hopefully whatever's causing this won't make it into stable.

  • @Tim so it isn't some built-in popup blocker that just blocks anything with "target" attribute? These days with more and more users being fanatic about popup windows, I won't be surprised with such a feature. Aug 18, 2013 at 13:27

    @ShaWizDowArd Making a browser not respect the target attribute would be quite… dumb.

    @TimStone FYI: Chrome 30 is now stable, and this issue is still present: “Learn More” link on tags broken in latest Chrome stable Oct 8, 2013 at 14:57
