Hello @Frédéric Bouhet ,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Is this question for Jira Server or Cloud?

I am asking because:

  1. For Jira Cloud
    this feature is tracked as [JRACLOUD-9380] external links to open in new window and, as written in the latest status update:
    "Opening external links in new tabs is one of many improvements coming to Jira Cloud with the new Jira issue view"
  2. For Jira Server:
    1. According to [JRASERVER-9380] external links to open in new window  the feature has been implemented in Jira Server and Data Center version 8.4.0
    2. However, due to a bug this still does not work for links in custom fields. The bug is tracked as: [JRASERVER-70096] External links in custom fields of type URL don't open in new tabs


You may want to vote and set yourself as a watcher to one the above tickets (depending on whether you use Server or Cloud) so that you will be updated in case of any progress.

Please let me know if this helps.
