    Description

      From the 3.11 accessibility audit:

      New window/tab opening

      The Feedback link in the footer opens a new window/tab without prior warning

      Unexpected changes of context such as the launching of new windows without prior warning to the user may cause confusion. For example, the user finds that the back button no longer behaves as expected. By making the user aware of a new window opening you can minimize confusion.

      It's a Level AAA failure but should be a relatively easy fix.
