    Description

      I noticed a problem in both Moodle 2.4 and Moodle 2.3. When using a URL resource set to open in either a "new window" or a "pop up", after clicking on the line, the link does not change to "visited" in the browser. I think that this might also happen with one commands moodle to open any link in a "new windows.

      I double checked to make sure it was not a browser problem by creating a "new window" link on one of my webpages using Dreamweaver, and everything worked fine. So the problem seems to be within Moodle.

      At first, I thought that the problem might be related to MDL-37015, but upon further investigation, I found that the problem was also in Moodle 2.3.2+.

      I have two videos that try to show the problem. This first video shows that Dreamweaver's "new window" does work by dimming the visited hyperlink.

      This second video shows the problem as it exists in Moodle 2.4 and 2.3.
