#27486 new defect

Onboarding: "Visit an Onion" creates an "about:blank" loading page

Such a loading page can make a user unsure what's going on.

In contrast, the "See My Path" button does not do this (i.e. it shows the URL).
(So it seems possible to fix this.)

(Encountered in TB 8.0)

I think the difference in behavior occurs because there is special handling in the onboarding code for "See My Path" while "Visit an Onion" simply uses <a href="...onion" target="_blank".
