Answer

Like paul cheung said, you cannot specify the browser in an openUrl button. Not only that, you cannot specify the URL's "target" in an openUrl button. You can see here that the only thing you can specify is the URL itself. The details of how the URL gets opened are the responsibility of the client and the bot has no control over them.

I think you have a few options.

Option 1

If you really want to open a browser window like a popup, you can try creating a sort of redirect page that the card would link to. When the user clicks the button, your redirect page would open in a new tab of the current browser window and then whatever client-side code you've set up would open the target page in a new window and close the redirect page's tab.

Option 2

The conventional way to do what you're talking about in Teams is to use a task module. Depending on what your URL contains, you might even consider putting a card in your task module instead of a web page.
