When Clicking on links in the editor, multiple tabs open at random

When I am in the Webflow Editor (not Designer) and click on a link to an external source, multiple tabs with that link open. Sometimes 3 tabs, sometimes 5 tabs at random. This also happens when my client clicks a link.

Again, this only happens in “Editor” Mode.

Hi @henrymcgillis

Thank you for posting and for bringing this to our attention! This definitely sounds like strange behavior.

I attempted to reproduce the behavior in a new site and with your site, but was unable to.

When did it start occurring? Is it occurring with more than this site?

Can you please try the following:
(1) Try to reproduce the error while being logged into Webflow using Incognito mode with browser extensions turned off:
(2) If the problem persists, please take a screenshot of your Console and send it to me:

Thanks in advance and I’ll be standing by for your response!

Hi @Brando

Sorry for the late reply. Apparently the problem solved itself! It does not seem to happen anymore…
I’ll let you know if it comes up again!

Kind regards

This is happening with our sites as well. To narrow it down it happens when using an external link being pulled in from a collection and clicking on the link while using the Editor. Also, if you are using a browser that has a heavy pop-up-blocker, it shows up as four links being blocked.

That is definiltey strange @spinellc

I tried to reproduce the behavior following the steps you provided but was unable to do so.

Can you please share your Read-Only link :slight_smile:

Here is our read only link:

The problem isn’t in the designer mode, it is while using the editor mode.
If I keep the console open, I can actually see a common theme of 4 duplicate pages being stopped when navigating around in designer mode.

Thanks so much for reporting this information @spinellc

I was able to reproduce the errors. I will file an issue for this and post back here when we find a solution.

Thanks again for your help with this issue!
