  • No, windows 8.1 webview does not support this, window.open() with _blank parameter will let the system open IE browser.

    If your user wants to login with facebook, use facebook api is necessary. See this for more information: https://github.com/Thuzi/facebook-winjs-sdk, a sample could also be found there by using Web Authentication Broker.

  • Hi suganthe,

    What do you mean by popup here, could you provide some screenshots for a better understanding?

    As I know Windows Store App does not support some feature like window.alert, window.prompt, window.confirm, could you validate if the page use these things?
