It is great to have images and links opening in new windows or tabs by selecting the "open in a new window". Thank you for getting this up and going. I tried this in both FF and Chrome

I added a text link directing to an uploaded pdf file to open in a new tab with the text widget. saved and published.The new tab opened but the file wasn't retrieved, just a blank tab with some suggestion that it was in the unavailable sitebuilder. I inspected the HTML and saw that in fact it was pointing to the file within the sitebuilder domain so of course couldn't be opened.

Editing the link HTML to remove the reference to the site builder keeping the indirect address, saving and publishing then worked successfully. I was able to repeat the problem and the solution.
