The Problem is not only the "Funktion" "Open Link in a new Window", the Problem ocours too if i make a Klick on a Picture to make it bigger or else.

For example on "www.amazon.de" at the click on a Product-Label to make it bigger.
Its opened here a little New Windows without any Contens! 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Two different things to try it...

1.Go to the "Help" Menue and select The Version Infos.
2.Make a right click on the mouse over any Link
3.Choose "Open Link in a new Window"
---> the Window ist clear 
4. If you Choose "Open Link in a new TAB"
---> The new Tab is opening and the Contens is normaly.

Second at www.amazon.de
1. Go to www.amazon.de and choose any artikle
2. press on the Article-Picture with the left Mouse Button
--> it was opened a clear Windows without contens.
Take an other Browser (Safari)
--> it was opened a litte Window with the Picture etc.
