    Maybe revise the need of opening in a new tab. Espo won't allow leaving the page if the form is edited but not saved. Not losing entered data is one of the main reason why this feature is used. Forcing opening links in a new tab in most cases is a bad practice. Though many old school developers like to use it. Better to let a user to decide how they want the link to be opened.

      The Good Reason in this case is the link opens our Zendesk support site, rather than something within Espo, so they'll usually need to use it whilst also keeping whatever they were working on.

      The way I've solved it was to Extend navbar.js and use the afterRender event to add the target attribute.
