External Wikipedia links cause app to redundantly create a new tab.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Steps to reproduce

  1. Search for any article on your mobile browser.
  2. Click the article that links to any Wikipedia page.

Expected results

Wikipedia Article opens only ONCE in the app. Different articles create different tabs, but they don't duplicate when clicking the external link more than once.

Actual results

The Wikipedia app will open a new tab within the app, and will keep adding a new separate tab for any article clicked from an external Wikipedia link, including the same article.

Suggest to add a simple "Delete all tabs on close" option and "Only open external links once in app" option in settings
