While holding Ctrl or Shift key while a page is created via create signal, the navigation action modifiers are not set.
This code always print "0":
def on_create(related, navigation_action):
The C API works perfectly fine for me, in trunk.
An introspection issue seems unlikely, since this is just a simple unsigned int.

Can you test above patch with trunk to confirm it's fixed?

Ah, you're thinking like me... that's almost exactly what I did to test yesterday. I used g_warning instead of printf (it's a bit more visible, and you don't need to write the \n), and I used __FUNCTION__ instead of writing out the function name in the printf... and I used w3school's tab opening example https://www.w3schools.com/howto/tryit.asp?filename=tryhow_js_tabs instead of their window opening example. Eerie.
That particular page is actually broken in trunk: none of the JS there seems to run. But you can test on https://www.w3schools.com/jsref/met_win_open.asp instead, by clicking on the Try it Yourself button. Shift+click is not going to work, because that triggers a download from navigation policy; it'll never rearch create_web_view_cb. But when I Alt+click I see it print 8.
Ok, thanks, I would have tested my self but webkit 2.19 make gcc to segfault on ArchLinux :/
Not fixed by 2.19.92
>when I Alt+click I see it print 8.
Now do the same with the "Try it" button, I see 0.
It is working with WebKitGTK 2.23.91!
