Paypal button does not open in new tab when target set to _blank
When the Paypal button is clicked, I want it to open the Paypal checkout in a new tab. The code I have for the button is as follows:
<input type="submit" class="buy" name="submit" value="BUY NOW" target="_blank" />
The class formats the button through CSS. I added a target of _blank to either open in a new window or tab, depending on the user's settings. However, when I test the page in IE8 and Firefox 3.0, the Paypal checkout loads in the same tab. It only opens in a new tab in Opera.
I remember that target attribute set to _blank use to work well in older versions of the extension.
My page is encoded in XHTML 1.0 Strict.
Can you please tell me what I need to do to get the checkout to open in a new tab/window.
