Hipchat links always open blank tab in new window Edited

Any kind of link I click on opens a new tab in a new window on Chrome's New Tab page.

Doesn't matter what it is: hyperlinks, URLs, menu dropdowns (including Help -> Provide feedback ironically), download image... whatever I click on in Hipchat just opens a blank tab in a new window.

I'm on macOS 10.13.2 running Hipchat v 4.30.1.749

Any help would be appreciated.

EDIT: Updated to macOS 10.13.3 and the issue seems to have been fixed. Still running Hipchat v 4.30.1.749

Try making sure Google Chrome is up to date.

Thanks very much for the suggestion! I thought it was up to date but it turns out it wasn't.
Now on Chrome Version 64.0.3282.167 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Issue is at least temporarily fixed. I'll try to remember to update this if it stays fixed.

Cheers!

Seems to be completely fixed now by updating chrome.

Same here, macOS 10.13.2, HipChat 4.30.1

[SOLVED]

Update to macOS 10.13.3 and the issue seems to have been fixed. 

Still running Hipchat v 4.30.1.749

Im on latest MacOS and i still get the issue every now and again.

Yeah I've just started getting it again. :(

I have the same Issue, restarting can fix it temporarily and but it comes back. Updating the OS does not fix it.
MacOS: 10.13.3 (17D47)
HipChat: 4.30.1.749

Same here, MacOS 10.13.3, HipChat 4.30.1.749. Thought I was on the latest Chrome, but it was pending a re-launch. That made the error go away.
