I just upgraded Google Chrome to version 34. As part of opening a new tab, it asked in a dialog box whether xdg-open was OK. I said yes and to remember the setting. Now when I try to open a new tab, Chrome opens a new window about every 700 milliseconds.

Where can I find that setting (to use xdg-open) and turn it off?

That is, where can I set what happens to the chrome-internal://newtab URL?

I didn't see anything specific to 'new tab' settings, but at the very least you could go to chrome://settings/ and reset browser settings to default. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
