occurs when a page is opened in a RadPane object
contained in a RadSpitter (but not always).
seems to occur if the window had previously opened another web page that contains
the following line of HTML markup: <base target="_blank"> When
this happens, something gets permanently set somehow so that all subsequent
pages will now open in a new tab (or window).
I noticed that you have the same question posted in a support ticket.
The ticket was replied by my colleague Vessy, so I am pasting for reference to everybody else her response:
The faced issue is related to a browser behavior related to the way Chrome is handling the new content of an iframe. You can reproduce the same issue with a standard iframe, without having any Telerik controls on the page - you can test it in the attached project. Unfortunately, as we are using iframe elements for the rendering of the external content of RadPane, we are also inheriting this Chrome behavior and cannot handle it internally.
The good news are that I tested the same pages with Chromium (which is the developer version of Chrome) and the problem does not occur there, meaning that it will be fixed in the Chrome's up-coming release.
