Blank window pops up when opening external links / "Opener" (about.blank) window remains open


#1

It’s not the end of the world but it gets a little annoying after a while. Everytime I click an external link in gCal a small, blank window (also titled “blank”) pops up then moves to the back of my stack of windows. It sits there till I close it.


Here’s the detailed report

  • Trigger: Clicking a link in google clendar
  • Issue: Blank window remains open.

  • OS version: Windows 10
  • Station version: 1.11.2

When clicking something inside station that opens a webpage outside Station, an "opener" window (about.blank) remains open

Hi @ziwzih ,

Something you could try if it really annoys you is resetting the tab where u have problems.
Still i think its just an external windows to open links on the side.

The first thing you can try is right clicking inside the tab where you have problems.
You should get a menu that looks like this:
2018-10-24_17-22-40
In this menu click on “Reset Current Application”
This could solve the problem.

Tell us if this helped you :wink:

I get why the “opener” window might be required, but it would be nice if it had a timer or event associated with it that closed it automatically.
