After Google Chrome 33 upgrade, I've noticed that all my site's links are blocked by the browser pop-up blocker. The links were working properly on Google Chrome 32 or older and not blocked. This is kind of strange for me as a piece of code like

<a href="">Example</a>

on the page is also blocked!

I have links like

<a id="some-id" class="mycred-points-link" href="" title="Something" target="_blank" data-key="rsa-key">Somewhere</a>

on my page and I use myCRED Wordpress plugin to reward points to users when they click on links.

How can I find out what causes this issue?

This question came from our site for pro webmasters.

What do your "site links" look like, how are popups triggered? Does the code you have given trigger any JS event handlers / popups? To be honest, I've not noticed anything different with Chrome 33 in this respect. – w3dk Feb 23 '14 at 22:49
@w3d yes I have added my links code in the question. – Ali Hashemi Feb 23 '14 at 23:16
What if you disable JavaScript? – w3dk Feb 23 '14 at 23:19
When I disable javascript, it's not blocked anymore. – Ali Hashemi Feb 23 '14 at 23:43
So I assume your popup capability is simply provided by the target="_blank" attribute? You aren't using JS to generate a popup? In that case it would seem that your WordPress plugins that (I assume) attach JS event handlers to those anchors are causing problems for the popup-blocker!? – w3dk Feb 23 '14 at 23:58
