"Open in new tab" checkbox in hyperlink entry doesn't save

When interfacing, the "Open in new tab" selection sometimes doesn't work. Rapidly entering the information on a slow internet connection should reproduce the bug.

It's probably tied to network information, where the "Save" button SHOULD send a delayed network transmission of the update. Instead, it drops the information.

This compounds as a worse problem with the new UI information, since it requires several clicks to confirm each hyperlink's present status.

The workaround is to wait 2-3 seconds after selecting the checkbox but before selecting "Save".

This most heavily affects power users and users with slow internet connections.

  • Focuses accessibility removed

This appears to be a block editor issue, so it needs to be moved into the Gutenberg repository for further handling. It might be related to or; or it may be a new issue that needs documentation.

Either way, it's not an accessibility issue.
