Chrome: new tabs keep popping

I've been using BTT for a few years now and always have been so happy with it.
But ever since I switched to my new Macbook pro 2019/Macosmojave, new blank google chrome tabs keep opening as I type on keyboard while on google chrome app. (It happened twice as I wrote this, that's how annoying it is.)
While BTT is disable it doesn't happen. I have emptied the google chrome gestures page and it still happens. none of my all apps gestures has anything to do with "new tabs".


Note: Before bug reporting, please make sure you have tried the latest (alpha) version of BetterTouchTool and that you have already tried to restart your system :-). If you encounter a crash, please attach a crash log from the macOS from the "User Diagnostic Reports" section.

Describe the bug
A clear and concise description of what the bug is.

Affected input device (e.g. MacBook Trackpad, Magic Mouse/Trackpad, Touch Bar, etc.):

If applicable, add screenshots to help explain your problem. (You can just paste or drag them here)

Device information:

  • Type of Mac:
  • macOS version:
  • BetterTouchTool version: (please post the exact version - not just "the latest one")

Additional information (e.g. StackTraces, related issues, screenshots, workarounds, etc.):

Probably you have assigned cmd+t (or middle click or cmd+click) to some trigger in BTT accidentally? If it's happening while typing, maybe to a touchpad corner tap?
Maybe post your config, then I can check where the problematic trigger is located


Here's my configuration right now and it still does it.

Thanks for helping me.

Oh and empty keyboard shortcut.

Could you send me an export ( or post it here? (click Preset on the top right, then select "Export Highlighted")

Hopefully that's what you're asking for...

I think you are most likely accidentally tapping the Netflix & Facebook Touch Bar buttons you configured:

They open a blank tab because they have a second empty line in the URL configuration field:

If you remove that you'll see whether netflix / facebook is popping up instead of the blank tab, then you'll now.

Txs!!! That was exactly that!!!
