      Description

      By creating the resource "Link to a file or web site" and selecting the option "New Window" this option is not accepted. The requested webpage opens in the same window.

      A new user may be confused if the Moodle window disappears, giving place to a new one. The new user may tend to close the web page window, and by doing so, logging off himself of Moodle.

      Follow these steps to replicate the bug:

      1- Press the Activate Editing Mode Button.
      2 - Select "Link to a file or web site" on the Combo Box "Add a Resource".
      3 - Fill in the form.
      4 - Select the "New Window" option.
      5 - Save the options.

      Bug: The link to a web page will open in the same window.
