actually when the user do an identity on a WMS Layer it can return an HTML page.
This html page is showed in a qgis window.

This is very good, but sometime in the page html there are some script that would start automatically another page
using javascript (We have a situation like this).

I see the qgis don't allow to start automatically another html window.

I guess a workaround to this and to have a better javascript compatibility I guess a choice could be to start a link in an external browser.
As example in the contextual menu after the option:
"open link" and "open link in new windows", add the option "Open link in external browser"
