URL field on user profile fails to open in new window

This document (7012841) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Novell Vibe 3.x


When the User Profile Form/View is modified and a URL field added to it with the option "Open URL in new Window", the URL fails to open in a new window. Instead, it is opened in the iFrame.


This problem has been reported to engineering. As a workaround, use the mouse right-click button and choose either:
'Open link in new tab' or 'Open link in new window'.

Additional Information

Note: Some URLs do not allow to be opened/rendered in an iFrame and as a result, clicking on such a URL will yield a blank iFrame.
