Question:
in Chrome:
When creating a new attribute of URL type in an object, f.e. project, and adding this in the properties page, the right-click - "open in new tab" is showing a blank page with address "about:blank".
In IE this is working correctly, it opens a new tab and the url address is loaded.
Answer:
This issue is found to be a Chrome specific behaviour.
In CA PPM as per the design while rendering the url instead of using a direct url, a javascript function is used to open the url in the new tab.
In Chrome it is a known issue that if when any javascript function is used as part of an anchor tag href attribute, Chrome won't invoke the javascript function and  instead it open's a blank page.
