It's doing the same thing for me in Chrome on both laptop and tablet.
In Chrome Version 76.0.3809.136 (Official Build) (64-bit)
and Full Site view on a laptop,
the Messenger console opens normally in a pop-up window from a noninteractive page,
and it opens a blank page in a pop-up window from an interactive page.
In Chrome 77.0.3865.92
and Mobile view on an Android 7.0 tablet,
the Messenger console opens normally in a new tab from a noninteractive page,
and it opens a blank page in a new tab from an interactive page.
Hope that helps.
